Company Overview
Do you find people getting ‘stuck’ in the process of engaging with your organization? Are people interested in your mission but not taking action towards it? Are people not realizing the full benefit of your services?
COVID-19 has changed the way we interact with others, but it doesn’t mean we can’t connect with them. Thoughtfully designed engagement paths and focused communication can help nonprofits build strong relationships with those who care most about their mission.

Emily Taylor, the principal of teenyBIG, is passionate about helping nonprofits find better ways to engage the people who matter to them. She guides teams in stepping outside of their day-to-day work in order to create stronger connections with their audiences, turning lackluster followers into enthusiastic supporters.

Emily teaches organizations how to apply human-centered design, a process that re-evaluates the experience of a product or service’s end-user. She designs and facilitates workshops to help teams understand and expand the user experience and offers coaching packages to further guide that process.

Speaker's Bureau Information

Topic 1
Creating Champions for Your Mission During COVID-19 and Beyond
Topic 1 Description
Do you feel like there is more potential for your audience to support your organization? Has COVID-19 made it feel like people are ‘stuck’ in the process of engaging with your work?

Passionate supporters can add momentum towards your mission – through support, advocacy, or skills - and having them means your organization can maximize its impact. In this workshop, we will teach the importance of stepping outside of your expertise and listening to people so you can guide them to increased engagement with your organization, creating champions for your most important work.
Topic 2
Human-Centered Design Workshop
Topic 2 Description
What does it mean to have more voices at the table? As people expect more say in how they spend their resources, nonprofits need to rely more on listening to the voices of their audience. In this workshop, you will learn about the collaborative process of human-centered design and its benefits to nonprofits. We will walk through several tools that will help attendees listen, observe, and test new ideas that will help them achieve their mission.
