It may sound like a stereotype, but in my direct experience of both worlds, people in the charity sector are much more naturally inclined towards collaboration. And yet, in general, we do far, far less of it than our more competitive commercial counterparts.
Tuesday 25th August 5pm: In this free, interactive webinar, I will share the principles, models and techniques of ethical selling: how it contrasts with the “hard sell”, and why it is far more effective in generating highly profitable, sustainable income streams.
Desperate times may call for desperate measures, but times of great change also create an opportunity to embrace great change in our response, through transformational thinking
16th June 5pm to 6pm. For the last 12 weeks I’ve been hosting regular group calls with CEOs from across the non-profit sector. In this free live seminar, I will share and discuss some of the most useful and productive frameworks we have used.
Over the last two weeks I’ve seen a dramatic shift in CEO focus, from dealing with the issues of today, to looking at the challenges of tomorrow; of Summer, Autumn and Winter; and of what comes after that.
The uncertainties our sector has experienced in the last few weeks, the fluidity of the situation, the financial pressures, the waiting for announcements, and the constant need to react and respond; all of those things will be with us far longer than we’d like to think
Every day, charities and social enterprises are doing incredible things, endlessly innovating and making a transformational difference to people’s lives. It just doesn’t make it into the media.
The biggest lessons that charities can take from businesses are not the models or the mechanics of money-making – their roots are just as deep in the sector as they are anywhere else.
A rare, free public seminar, open to all executives and senior managers within the non-profit sector who are looking to explore, develop or improve the performance of commercial enterprise, to generate profitable income and deliver sustainable social impact.
To mark the launch of Martyn’s new book, The Commercial Charity, we will be celebrating the rich history and huge potential of social business, on 5th May 2020, kindly hosted by Coram, one of the world’s oldest commercial charities.
