Event description

Description

You will want to attend the ‘working out your project idea’ session first before attending this free workshop which provides an overview of key things needed for any early stage organisation seeking to set itself up properly for future success. Covering a wide range of areas such as legal structures, essential systems, free support, common founder issues, you will want to attend if you find you are facing hurdles / barriers or want to check that the direction you are heading in, is worth the effort.

Each workshop lasts 2.5 hours and will include an expert presentation, group work to allow attendees to share ideas and solutions, as well as time for individual customised support. Up to 16 people can book. It will be run at CVA Resource Centre by Claudia Demuth. If you have particular needs, please let us know when booking.

Trainer Details: As an experienced coach and fundraising trainer, Claudia Demuth helps not for profits to set up, effectively deliver, and carefully reflect on income generation / business planning approaches. During the last 20 years Claudia has supported a wide range of charities, social enterprises and sub-regional partnerships to raise funds from sources such as the Big Lottery, Dept of Health or ESF, as well as acting as a critical eye for those wanting to set up great new projects. Currently an associate for the Law Centres Network, the School for Social Entrepreneurs, and Homeless Link she uses expert coaching and action learning techniques to encourage people to think outside of the box. Clients really value Claudia’s ability to quickly identify organisational stumbling blocks and ask hard questions which help challenge long-held assumptions, whilst bringing humour and patience to this sometimes painful process! With 20 years’ experience in funding panels, commissioning, business planning and project management, she prefers to keep things really simple and enjoys most helping people to discover their own ‘light-bulb’ moments. In her spare time, she coaches long-term unemployed back into work and helps to maintain Bushy Park’s woodlands.
