*** We are sorry to say, but due to the current CORVID-19 situation, we are no longer allowed visitors to our premises, so we have to postpone this training session. We will be setting new dates when things are back to normal. ***
Focusing on content rather than technology, this introductory session will help you take the first steps to think creatively and realistically about your organisations approach to communication, engagement and relationship maintenance, whilst considering how this fits in with the work you are already doing.
By the end of the session you will start drawing up a plan of how to engage with your different supporters in line with your organisations capabilities and capacity.
‘Is it for me?’ series
This session is part of the ‘Is it for me?’ series which are introductory sessions aimed at helping groups diversify their income streams and consider whether a particular fundraising stream is suitable for their organisations capabilities, capacity and whether to investigate further.
This session will help you:
• Creatively consider how you communicate and engage with your different supporters through the content you produce
• Consider how to maintain relationships with different supporters depending on their motivation and connection with you
• Begin to develop a strategic approach to engaging with your supporters’ long term.
This is an introductory session aimed at smaller organisations who are new to the concept of supporter engagement or those who have some experience but would like the space to reflect on their practice.
