The Forum

 A global community for non-profit and social purpose leaders. Together we are stronger and better!  

Change and uncertainty are commonplace for the today's organizations.  Add the mandate, mission and strong desire to be a difference-maker to the mix and leaders in the non-profit and social purpose business sectors have additional challenges.  On a positive note, they are also raising the bar and better meeting the wants and needs of investors, sponsors, consumers, stakeholders and the world!

As they say, we cannot meet these objectives alone!  We are better together!  More innovative, more efficient, better employers and suppliers of products and services, while also being better community members.

However, you also need a community dedicated to supporting YOUR needs!  Think about how great it would be to easily reach out to a trusted colleague to find the resources you need, to receive feedback and to not “reinvent the wheel”.  Or, what if you could accelerate your understanding of a trending topic, or gain a new skill?


The Ignite Impact Collective

I know that being a non-profit leader and an entrepreneur dedicated to social impact through business can be a lonely position because your position is very unique.  Whether you report to the Board and you lead your team, or aim to stay true to a purpose that motivates you and drives your business you lack a peer at your level who can fully relate to what you're dealing with.

Many years ago in the early years of my entrepreneurial journey, I sought out membership groups to help me navigate the challenges, while also helping fuel my business journey.  When I adopted the purpose-driven business model, I felt very alone and struggled to find other like-minded leaders.

Also, when I was leading a rapidly growing non-profit, I sought out groups to connect with other Executive Directors and CEO's for this very reason.  Other EDs and CEOs in both sectors shared similar feelings with me and so the Ignite Impact Collective was born!

The Forum

As part of the Ignite Impact Collective, The Forum is a community of non-profit leaders and social purpose small business owners who are dedicated to elevating leadership within their organization and advancing the good they can create.

Leading with a strong social purpose presents new challenges.  Not only are you juggling the needs of the organization/business, you have a mission to fulfil.  You also have your own needs to be met or you can't be an effective leader.

The Forum offers today's social purpose leader to have their cup filled so they can lead their organization.

The Forum IS for you if...

  • You are in early start-up mode and resources are stretched thin yet you want to belong to a community of like-minded leaders.
  • Social purpose is important to you and you want to focus on growing your impact and your organization/business.
  • You value how a community fosters learning, sharing and growth.
  • You recognize that future success can be achieved by building strong business - non-profit partnerships for the mutual benefit of both organizations.

The Forum is NOT for you if...

  • Social purpose is not a high priority.
  • You are content to “stay the course”.
  • Joining a membership program and accessing community, and resources is not important right now.
Yes, I'm In!
