Short Term Flash Coaching

Present with Confidence Flash Coaching is my most-requested service for both nonprofit and business clients:

Are you a nervous presenter? Do you have a live presentation coming up that’s keeping you awake at night? Not sure if it’s engaging enough or if it’s even finished? Worried about your visual materials or your handouts?

In person or on video — I’ll coach you through it, offering skills and tips for your presentation and its delivery. Together we’ll create a more exciting experience for your audience, and give you the confidence you need to shine.

(You can also check out the group training version of Present with Confidence. It’s my most popular class!)

Other Flash Coaching Topics

Flash Coaching gives you three hours of intensive support, review, editing or some conversation to talk you off the ledge.

Sometimes it just takes a little extra help from someone who’s been there before.

Quick Fundraising Proposal Review and Editing: Is the deadline looming and that big application package needs a little more work? Need an outside reader with a critical and experienced eye?

I’ve written and edited hundreds of successful grant and sponsorship proposals and have taught grantwriting for years. Send me that draft and I’ll review it and then step through it with you for the best choices in message, language, and structure. We’ll make it compelling and give you the best chance for success.

Starting a Nonprofit: Do you think you might want to start a nonprofit?  Have you examined the pros and cons of maintaining a nonprofit and thought about the alternatives?  Do you want more information and know-how before you begin the process?

I’ve helped form and build dozens of nonprofits and can help you decide whether or not starting a nonprofit is right for you.

Capital Campaigns: Before you spend thousands on consultants, materials and promotion for your capital campaign, be aware of the crucial pre-campaign planning that has to be done. Make sure your board, staff, volunteers, supporters and your operational infrastructure –staff, systems – are all ready to create and take on your most exciting campaign ever.

Whether for bricks and mortar, new property, endowment, or combined projects, capital campaigns encompass some of the biggest goals your organization will tackle. They also present the greatest opportunities for embracing transformation –opportunities to move an organization to a higher level and greater service. But before kicking off any capital campaign, there are some very specific kinds of preparation you need to do. We’ll look at staffing, board involvement, volunteer recruitment, communication, and internal systems so your campaign is poised for success from the very beginning. Let me help you save time and money by getting those ducks in a row!

Quick Brain Picking and Storming: Let’s talk it through: Is it a sticky problem or a matter of personal versus professional? Is it something that doesn’t seem appropriate for board or staff discussion? Don’t know where to turn for personalized guidance and information? Would a few impartial conversations by phone (or in person if it’s practical) with someone who “speaks nonprofit” help you sort it out?

I’ve served as adviser to board chairs, managers, staff, volunteers and EDs — through campaigns, events and the day to day challenges. I’ve worked in the nonprofit sector for a looong time so it’s hard to surprise me…and I also have access to a wealth of information, resources, and the advice of other professionals.

Drop me an email and let’s schedule a time to meet or talk by phone. We’ll figure it out together.

Recently, one client said, “Ginny has helped me sort out the million things I was thinking about for our campaign. Her experience and understanding helped me bring order to chaos, focus on priorities, solve problems and not go crazy!”

Flash Coaching is $200 for 3 hours devoted just to you.
