Strong communications teams cultivate a pipeline of donors, clients, advocates, and other key audiences, helping them build a strong relationship with your organization. They invite people into your organization, ensuring they feel welcome, connected, and encouraged to stay. In order to do that, your in-house team needs the best possible people, processes, structure, and skills.

Big Duck is committed to developing strong in-house teams that can support a nonprofit’s mission and growth. We do this in four ways:

  1. We create communications-focused plans to achieve outcomes set in strategic, operational, or business plans, establishing clear priorities and providing metrics to track progress.
  2. We support and lead strategic planning processes, layering in marketing and communications-specific research questions, insights, and objectives.
  3. We conduct searches for director-level communications staff, and restructure growing communications departments.
  4. We build the communications skills of nonprofit staff and board members with free, low-cost, or customized trainings and workshops (some of which are listed here.)

Our organization is in a period of enormous and exciting growth. I enlisted Big Duck’s help to think through how to structure and hire people into roles that can scale with us. It gave me clarity and confidence for the road ahead.
