Working with Voluntary sector partners and the Lloyds Bank Foundation, the Norfolk Community College project are pleased to invite providers and Great Yarmouth based organisations to attend a workshop delivered by the FSI (Foundation for Social Improvement) where we will explore mutual organisational benefits and local collaboration before looking at building and maintaining the relationships in the sector.
The next workshop in our programme to help charities and businesses to support one another is Thursday 30th September 1.30-4.30pm
In our previous workshops, we have explored how partnering with a local business can provide mutual benefit and provide support through a joint sharing of skills, knowledge, and experience where new ideas can be created together. We have worked together on improving networking, communication and promoting your charity’s work.
Delivered by Janine Edwards from the Foundation for Social Improvement, where we will focus on:
Business partnerships – mutual benefit & collaboration
- Why businesses engage with charities.
- Understanding the business drivers and mutual benefit
- What can you offer – what do want from a business partnership?
- Finding the match and opportunity – Identifying prospective partners and the ‘hook’ for a relationship
- The importance of networks and routes into prospective partners (network mapping)
Building and maintaining the relationship
- Engaging and building the relationship, from first call/meeting to a successful strategic partnership
- Building shared understanding and embracing difference
- Keeping the relationship alive
- Putting it all together!
