This 2 day programme will give you insight into:

• Your organisation’s current situation and what that could mean for partnerships

• The opportunities and challenges of working more closely with others

• Practical issues such as asset building, tendering and intellectual property

• Strategic questions and how to prepare for an enterprise partnership

This programme is designed to support you to work collaboratively, and in partnership with others. It is ideal for all third sector organisations including social enterprises, membership organisations and intermediaries.
