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 21st July 5pm: In this free, interactive webinar, I will show how you can develop dynamic strategy models and consciously adopt a much more agile approach to strategic decision-making
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
Why we need to learn from the progress we’ve made in this crisis; build on the change it has catalysed; and drive forward, with as much urgency and commitment, those huge strategic moves that we’ve put off for years.
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.
Thinking differently about income generation:

Repetition is comforting and familiar, but the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result
Too many people still think charities should be the domain of the well-meaning amateur, but purpose and professionalism are not mutually exclusive.
