Program and Member Engagement Strategy: I can assist with program innovation and strategy, helping you to think more creatively and inclusively about how to achieve your mission. I can assess current programs for areas of growth and opportunity, help you clarify a vision, create plan of action, and identify achievable, measurable outcomes. I have experience with both direct service programs, as well as community organizing and engagement.


Program Management and Accountability: I offer expanded leadership capacity and insights through program audits, and new opportunities for reflective learning through program management. I can also support with developing or implementing monitoring and evaluation tools and systems.


Voice and Messaging: A storyteller at heart, I can craft compelling program and impact narratives for clients, donors, and other stakeholders. I can also help you and your staff to more regularly, and more authentically, weave storytelling into your work and public presence (e.g., into web sites, social media, donor materials, and other campaigns).

Tugboat 23 Consulting

Tugboat 23 Consulting's avatar

Many people can run a successful event – where I excel is in the goal-planning and follow-up that ensure that organizations get every possible bit of positive impact out of each event.  I treat an event as the beginning of a relationship, not the culmination of a period of planning.  With my help, the event can open many new doors for your organization.  Also, I’ve found that in small shops, the Executive Director often spends an event running around and troubleshooting – with my help, the ED will be doing what he/she needs to do: building relationships with donors, not negotiating with the caterer!


I work closely with clients to produce a creative event that fits their mission and goals.  Then I’ll make sure that they get much more out of your event than you put into it – I am experienced at getting the most out of a small budget. Whether the focus is pure fundraising, donor acquisition, donor recognition, or “everything!”, I give clients all the tools to maximize the positive impact of a well-executed event.  I am available to plan entire events from A-Z, to take on portions of event-planning (e.g. publicity, silent auction), or to serve as a "day-of" event planner.


I also help small organizations with fundraising planning.  Depending on the organization's wishes, I can either work with them to create a customized plan complete with follow-up appointments, or I can get my hands dirty and assist in day-to-day operations.


I am an engaging and irreverent public speaker and have spoken at several statewide and national conferences about grassroots event planning and Fundraising 101.

McQueen has developed a reputation for bringing people together to develop long-term solutions.  The best example of this is her work with the Cultural Task Force, a large group of sector and business leaders that developed the case for state investment in cultural facilities, leading to the Commonwealth's Cultural Facilities Fund, which has invested more than $44 million since 2007.

Marie Peeler, MS, PCC

Peeler Associates

Peeler Associates helps nonprofit leaders enhance their leadership effectiveness, focus on what's most important, and achieve their desired goals.


Peeler Associates provides Executive Coaching and related Leadership Development services that get results: 



  • Executive and Leadership Coaching programs help leaders develop their individual capacities and acquire new skills that allow them to achieve greater leadership effectiveness and organizational performance.



  • Team Development and Team Coaching is all about doing real work in real time while learning to do it better as a team; it's team building where the rubber meets the road.



  • Facilitation services help a team tackle a new initiative or solve a problem with the help of a professional who will keep the team on track and ensure all voices are heard.



  • Customized Learning meets the specific training and development needs of an organization, through custom-designed leadership workshops and seminars, which provide a common language for an organization, while economically providing leadership training and development for a larger group of leaders.



  • Leadership Assessments help establish current benchmarks that guide goal setting and program development.



  • Business Retreats take leaders off-site for a day or longer to help them work on business issues, build a stronger team, or learn new skills. 


Marie Peeler, the founder and principal of Peeler Associates, has the 'in the trenches" leadership experience to understand the challenges today's leaders face.  In addition, she has a Master's degree in Organizational Learning and Development, earned her coaching credentials in the Leadership Coaching program at Georgetown University, and is an ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC.)



In addition to working extensively with non-profit leaders and teams to help them increase their leadership effectiveness, Marie is active in her community as a past Board Chair and current Board Member of the Old Colony YMCA, a member of her town's Financial Advisory Committee, and a community leader in the grassroots Bay Circuit Alliance.


"You have to invest in yourself as a leader to move your organization forward, it's just as important as managing staff or balancing a budget.  I suspected this, which is why I started to work with Marie in the first place, but she really helped me believe it.  Working with her I have a better sense of who I am and what role I need to play to be the best I can be at my job."


Katie Everett, Executive Director, The Lynch Foundation


 


"In this era of transparency, my belief is that objectivity of a board is essential.  Still, voluntary boards need to be accountable, and not just act as rubber stampers.  Marie was instrumental in working with our board to engage and prioritize, which ultimately led to better leadership.  Marie was able to unify the group by drawing on opinions and experiences to meet with consensus.  The priorities set from the facilitation were carried through for the duration of the year and in the end our board was better engaged and functioning at a much higher level.

Steven Smith

It's The Results, LLC

The focus of It's The Results is on Board Development: specifically, recruitment, orientation/training, and self-assessment. I work with staff and volunteer leadership to identify the nonprofit/community benefit organization's needs.  A plan is designed to meet the particular needs identified in my learning process. The approach I take is based on where the client is in that point in time: what are the board's primary needs?  What are the priorities?  What will be the best approach (retreat, training in conjunction with planned meetings?) and timetable to deliver a program that best benefits the board.


 


I also specialize in development/fundraising planning that delivers a diversified approach, staged to grow over time to provide achievable revenue streams for the nonprofit.


 


Strategic Planning is another forte: we identify and clarify needs of the nonprofit's clients, tweak/adjust the program to assure delivery of the measurable change intended, and a revenue generation plan to match.

Diane Gordon

Diane Gordon Consulting

Diane Gordon works with clients to achieve strategic goals, measure results, and create stronger, more resilient organizations.


Diane has 30 years of experience in nonprofit executive management, leadership, and consulting.  She specializes in strategic planning and evaluation, outcome measurement systems, staff and board development, executive coaching, and community leadership development. She works with a broad range of nonprofits and foundations, bringing the unique perspective of manager, consultant, and funder.  Having led two nonprofits, Diane has a practical approach to her work, combining a deep understanding of the practices and principles of management with the day-to-day reality of running a nonprofit.


Summary of Relevant Experience


Diane Gordon became an independent management consultant in 2005, working directly with a broad range of nonprofit organizations to build their capacity for strategic impact.  Over the past four and a half years, she has conducted numerous organizational assessments, facilitated strategic planning processes, and assisted organizations to design and implement outcome measurement systems.  Program evaluation, executive and staff coaching, board of directors development, training workshops, and grant review are among her other projects. 


Prior to launching her consulting practice, Diane served for seven years as the Executive Director of Boston-based Management Consulting Services, an organization dedicated to strengthening the capacity of nonprofit organizations. As Executive Director of MCS, she oversaw consulting services, grantmaking, and collaborative learning programs for over 300 nonprofit organizations.  MCS facilitated hundreds of organizational assessments, building the capacity of agency leadership to uncover the symptoms and causes of organizational obstacles, and develop a tailored, practical plan for greater impact.  By coordinating a network of management consultants and providing strategic grants to support organizational development, MCS built the capacity of nonprofits in a wide variety of fields, including youth development, housing, job training, arts and culture, environmental, health care, organizing and advocacy, immigrant, and human services.


Before becoming the Executive Director of MCS in 1998, Diane was National Coordinator of Resident Leadership Initiatives for the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation (now known as NeighborWorks America) - a position she held for over ten years.  There she created and led a nationwide effort to strengthen resident participation and leadership in nonprofit community development organizations.  She directed a project that funded, trained, and supported community organizers in cities across the country, coaching them to build grassroots members and develop leadership for the organizations.  She also initiated the Community Leadership Institutes - training programs for emerging resident leaders, and the Community Organizer Symposium - a networking and learning opportunity for community organizers nationwide.


Diane has also served as Executive Director of the Massachusetts Tenants Organization, a statewide member association that protected tenants rights through grassroots organizing, leadership development, education and advocacy, and as a community organizer for the Rhode Island based Coalition for Consumer Justice.  She is a graduate of Brown University.
