We love to support the third sector as much as we can. Although we can’t help everyone and so we have a charity of the year for each venue. (Usually chosen by the coordinator with the support of the Golden Ticket Members). There are lots of ways we can help all charities and third sector organisations;
For the Charity of the year we would like to offer;
(We find that this works very well for the charities that turn up every month so that the women in business get to know you and what you are looking to achieve. )
We can not guarantee a sack of cash (we wish we could!) however we will do all we can to raise awareness of your organisation, support you and your events and help raise much funds if we can too.
How do we decide?
It’s too hard for us! This year we have had Julie Dallard attend from the Children’s Heart Federation, Eric Prince from Colchester Hospital’s new Wellness centre project, Great Ormond Street Hospital and The Universities Basketball Team, as well as others that have popped along.
So it’s over to you!
If you have a preference, send that charity this information;
At our Colchester Christmas event on the 14th December (more information here) 10am we are donating the Sponsors slot to charities. Depending on how many attend on the day will depend on how long they get to pitch to the audience. It is a 10 minute slot, therefore if 4 charities attend then they would get 2.5 minutes each.
There will be time from 10am to 10.30 to freely network too.
It will be timed to make it fair.
You are welcome to bring your banner for free.
You can promote your charity and share why The BWN should choose your charity on our social media in the lead up to the event.
Book your ticket here or direct with our Colchester coordinator Mandie Holgate.
The decision will be made on the day by a show of hands from the women attending the event.
I thought I’d share with you, the Insiders some things I recently learnt from hosting the free 3 hour coaching session I offered. I hope these things will help you too. This is confidential and not for sharing. I share at a far more honest level here on the Insiders because we’ve grown to know, like and trust one another. and as such hopefully by now you know my tonality and the way I communicate – with love, and passion for your success!
Firstly why the heck did a coach that can easily command £1k for a days training “give it away for a fiver?”
I have had a good year with some amazing clients who have all seen changes and benefits from their time with me and I adore working with these people, so I wanted to give something back. Rightly or wrongly I’m fiercely loyal, care deeply about small business owners and want to be there for those that can’t afford my coaching too, because I know I can make a difference. A bit soppy but yes, I just wanted to be there for you, and I just wanted to show I care and offer something that anyone could access if they were prepared to drop one coffee this week to pay for it.
So what did I learn that could help you for your next “Bums on Seats” adventure;
I hope these thoughts help you in multiple ways too and I look forward to seeing you in The Insiders, at The BWN and on my courses.
