Choosing Your Structure

A workshop specifically for VCSE groups within the city of Manchester looking at what structure is best suited for them.

  • Are you thinking of setting up a voluntary and community organisation?
  • Are you thinking about changing the structure that you currently have?

This workshop offers the opportunity to double check that the structure you are considering or have is really correct for the type of activities / funding sources / organisation you want to be and will take you through the steps you need to take to adopt a suitable structure.

Gathering Stories

Stories stir the imagination and connect people and organisations to each other. They are a powerful tool to increase the profile of and engagement with your charity. 

If you would like to build on your existing skills and think about new ways to tell stories, this course is for you.

This course is aimed at anyone in a Manchester voluntary and community sector group who would like to increase their skills and use of storytelling in their work. This could mean telling the story of your service users, volunteers or your organisation.

Public Speaking

Back by popular demand - Over 3 hours we explore the nature of public speaking and how to identify what type of public speaker everyone is.

We cover a practical session in how to manage nerves and the keys to essential preparation to make any speech a success. The group will then learn how humans behave as tribes and how we can use that tribal nature to change attitudes and opinions.
