Fundraising Consulting

Coaching for future-ready change makers.

Group Coaching

Group coaching brings the coaching conversation into a small group context. Helping changemakers to focus on goal setting, deepening awareness around key issues, taking action, and holding each other accountable.
Coaching social entrepreneurs helps accelerate their success by creating new energy, purpose and to focus on their impact.  Helping them see a new perspective to their situation and providing a non-judgmental space to prioritize what is essential for the entrepreneur.

responsibilities of the interns and millennial staff, as well as their expectations and skills through role-plays and discussions of the different scenarios given. Conducted by Usha Menon in collaboration with SGTech.
Thank you for helping us to strengthen our fund-raising skills these past months. The past 11months have been a tremendous learning experience for us, and it was a privilege for my team and me to work alongside you. Watching a master at work is really the kind of training one cannot get in the classroom. You have demonstrated the finer art of fund-raising for us and this has been most valuable.
Gerard Ee, CEO, Beyond Social Services
Usha Menon was well prepared and very engaging. She was able to quickly understand the background and nature of the organisation and give relevant/specific inputs. She was also able to handle questions effectively and offer helpful suggestions.
Usha was great and it is clear that she has a wealth of experience in the world of fundraising. Her enthusiasm shifts mindsets about what fundraising should be about - fun and collaborative instead of just asking for money and hitting targets.
