“NextGen NPO’s did a fantastic job in training our Board members on their role in fundraising. Having Ryan coach them as an outside, experienced and seasoned consultant, motivated and challenged them in a way I could never do as the CEO. Ryan’s professionalism, energy and fundraising experience created excitement and passion in our Board room like I’ve never seen. His analysis of our development team, plan, systems and processes has charted a new direction and course of action for my staff and Board.”
Brandon Dowdy Executive DirectorPathways Early Education Center of Immokalee
“NextGen NPO’s Consulting Group was transformational in our business and operational development plans. Ryan’s approach in analyzing our financials resulted in a focus on new revenue streams to ensure long term sustainability without so much reliance on contributions, grants and corporate revenue to support operations. Ryan’s suggestions enabled us to revamp our organizational structure to help drive earned revenue and improve operational efficiencies without cutting expenses.”
Celina Weatherwax PresidentMAAC Foundation
“Ryan’s experience as a non-profit CEO brings credibility and relevancy to his executive coaching methodology. As the CEO of a large non-profit, you don’t have many people who can relate in regard to your funding challenges, personnel issues with staff, navigating board support, or even your grandiose visions. Ryan draws on decades of real-world scenarios to coach and support other leaders. I would highly recommend Ryan to any nonprofit CEO that may need that guidance as they go to transform their organizations to the next level.”
