Event description
Understand a process for engaging your trustees, staff and volunteers with an organisational re-set after this period of disruption.

About this event

Everyone's experience of the pandemic period has been slightly different, and their engagement with your organisation during this time will also have differed greatly. This session will explore a framework for engaging with people's ideas about how the organisation and its people can move forwards together, with an organisational re-set after this disrupted period.

The session will explore ways to think about:

  • What must your organisation keep in place?
  • What can or should your organisation now stop doing?
  • What new activities from the pandemic experience should you embrace and continue to develop as you move forwards?
  • How to manage consultation, decisions and communication around your re-set

There are 18 places available on this FREE course.

The course is aimed at museum leaders in organisations of all sizes and types, who are in a position to influence their organisation and who have strategic responsibility.

Priority will be given to one person per organisation, and to non-NPO museums in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

How will the training be delivered?

This training is being developed and delivered by Jane Walton, an experienced trainer and facilitator, and an active trustee and director of community and heritage organisations.

We will also deliver a complementary session on Supporting Return and Re-Entry for Employees on Wednesday 21st April, and Supporting Return and Re-Entry for Volunteers on Wednesday 28th April. Each session is stand-alone, and you can book for the sessions which are relevant to you.
