Considering Consulting to Nonprofits? Advice from the Pros, Speed- Dating Style - #15NTCnpconsult

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How to make the move from in-house employee to self-employed consultant to nonprofits is a frequent coffee/hallway conversation at NTC. Many of those working inside nonprofit organizations are considering either transitioning to consulting or picking up some projects on the side. However, there are countless elements to figure out when making the shift to starting your own business or running a consultancy.

This session will focus on answering your questions about how to run a successful consulting practice, whether as an IT, fundraising, communications, or other consultant. We’ll combine very short presentations on specific topics with speed-dating style opportunities to ask questions, matching small groups with a mix of established consultants in the room. Some of the topics we’ll cover will include: establishing a niche, pricing your services, how to quote on projects, marketing, getting referrals, and more.
