Involve Swindon Launches Business Buddy
Are you the CEO or Trustee of a medium sized charity with an income of more than £100k? Do you think you could benefit from a “Business Buddy” to help you with the everyday challenges of running your organisation?
A Business Buddy is a charity’s conduit to a support network of business skills, helping charities better articulate the skills they need, assisting them in finding skilled volunteers, and being a supportive “buddy”. Business Buddies are the heart of enhancing skills volunteering, committing more than a one-off skills volunteering activity, but less than the formal responsibilities of a Trustee.
Their role is to:
- Act as a mentor / sounding board, befriending the manager in their every day role
- Work with the manager and Trustee board of the charity to identify how and where opportunities for using skilled volunteers could benefit the work of the organisation
- Use existing business contacts and networks to find solutions to enable the manager to move forward
If you think you or your charity could benefit from a Business Buddy, get in touch with email@example.com
It would be helpful if you could indicate what you may need help with initially so we can try and match you up with the appropriate buddy.
