For almost three years Benojo has run a two-day training workshop "Acquiring & Building Effective Corporate Partnerships'. The workshop has been delivered to almost 400 charities and has become a benchmark program in helping non-profit and charitable organisations adopt and deliver best practice in approaching and managing relationships with corporate partners.
In the past we have had subject matter experts from some of the largest corporations in the country as well as small and medium size businesses who have varying degrees of maturity when it comes to their business and Social Responsibility. This mix is invaluable and highly engaging for students.
It is an opportunity to share your knowledge, network with charities and other CSR leaders and contribute to those who often never get the chance to have these types of interactions. It will also be an opportunity to be part of a highly energised and enjoyable session that commonly provokes many new ideas, ways of thinking and a motivation for people to take their learnings to a higher level.
We would like to invite you to participate in being a panel member for one of our workshops.
The workshop is separated into two distinct segments. On their first day students adopt an approach methodology and are then asked to take the model back to their workplace to produce a pitch and proposal to actual and potential partner.
On the second day they present back their proposal for critique, input, insights and recommendations for further development.
The method by which they receive feedback is both peer led and from subject matter experts like yourself. In groups of usually 4 they present their short pitches and supporting documentation and discussion then ensues around what was positive, what can be improved upon and what else could be included to add further value. The subject matter expert not only plays the role of a corporate panel member to provide feedback but also adopts a mentor role during the session.
This approach coupled with peer insight has proven to be extremely powerful in the past and helped lead to the establishment of some of Australia's most successful partnerships.
The time commitment would be around three hours. Thank you for considering giving us and the charity community your valuable time and expertise.
