2016 Falling Evening Classes


5th Annual Visionaries Symposium Luncheon – The Vision of Strength Based Leadership  Keynote Speaker – Roquita Coleman Williams – CN Rail

“Connecting the Pieces…The Vision of Strength Based Leadership”

Whether it be coaching Peewee league baseball, a board member for a million dollar company or a team leader responsible for getting results, a strong foundation of leadership is essential.  Success in any capacity that encompasses a team of efforts, almost certainly will be a by-product of some form of positive leadership. As the way we interact and conduct business continues to evolve in a global economy with more technology and no geographic boundaries to whom we make work with, the way leadership cultivates prosperity continues to transform.

Gone… are the days where all members of a team may have the same formal education and cultural backgrounds, so how leadership identifies the best way to attain its organizations respective goals is correlated to how it positions its internal and external stakeholders to collaborate to drive new approaches and solutions. A universal truth is that change is inevitable so our willingness to improve and learn new strategies must be constant, especially for those accountable for leadership.

We invite you…. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/nbmbaa-visionaries-symposium-luncheon-tickets-24236293406

Listen, previous participants have been overwhelmed by how impactful and interactive this training is and are amazed that they feel confident and ready to conquer the grant writing world after just one class.  They have reported how they were told how hard it is to write grants, some have even spent thousands of dollars on so called “grant writers” who haven’t been able to deliver, and some have horror stories about trying to write them without any type of training.
You will be given comprehensive training, which includes how to start an effective non-profit, learn about your tax forms including your 501c3, learn how to write a grant and actually write a group proposal that day in class, you will get a step-by-step guidebook, you have a grant writer that is available to answer questions after your class…and…we will also be providing you with a list of over 600 funders who are looking to fund programs like yours RIGHT NOW!  So, we ask you, what excuse do you have not to learn how to grant write, right now?

This workshop will bring together individuals and professionals in the field of grants, including grantees, grantors, and so many other professionals who focus on helping people.

You will experience a high-energy training that will be full of amazing tools, real-life applicable examples, and experiences that will make you a strong grant writer. You should NOT have to pay thousands of dollars to “grant writers” who can’t the get job done, who can’t guarantee their work, and who disappoint you.

At the conclusion of the Comprehensive Grant Writing Workshop you will be able to start and write grants yourself, and save the dollars you would spend on the purchase of a grant writer to go toward funding your passion.
