Good Governance Awards 2021

The VSB Foundation are pleased to launch the 2021 Good Governance Awards for Northern Ireland.  Delivered in partnership with CO3 and Volunteer Now.

The Good Governance Awards will showcase how good governance and driving social change are essentially interlinked and will provide an opportunity to celebrate what is best in the sector.

Charities exist to create a better society. They operate for many different purposes, and in many ways. Trusteeship is hugely rewarding, as well as providing opportunities for personal development.

These 3 words may fill you with dread, or may pique your interest. Either way, one thing is for certain, now more than ever, we can no longer ignore them!!

From March 2020, CO3 facilitated virtual meetups with our members. These sessions were invaluable to help us all navigate through the pandemic, providing support, advice, guidance and in some cases a safe space to discuss the challenges we were facing.

Interim Executive Training prepares individuals to work with a Third Sector organisation on a short term basis, helping organisations to either manage a gap in permanent leadership and/or to provide additional support to a Chief Executive and the Senior Management team in times of need.

Change comes in many forms, and can affect every part of our lives. We can experience transitions in work and our relationships, as well as our personal lives. Sometimes we know a change will occur and sometimes change happens suddenly and unexpectedly. Many people spend a great deal of effort trying to avoid change, but the situation surrounding COVID-19 has meant we have had to adjust how we spend our day to day lives in order to save the lives of others.

Appointed with the help of CO3's recruitment service, Engage, Northern Ireland National Director of Diabetes UK, Tina McCrossan was barely into post when Covid-19 hit in early 2020.  Here she tells CO3's members about how a focus on planning and communications kept her new team on point.  

The theme for CO3's Conference and Leadership Awards taking place in March 2020 is "The Why factor”.

So this begs the question, why invest in training?

Let’s take a moment to think about investments, all the necessary commodities that require monthly investment, be it office equipment, IT, security, mileage, wages… The list is endless!

Digital Marketing Strategy

These 3 words may fill you with dread or may pique your interest. Either way, one thing is for certain, now more than ever, we can no longer ignore them!!
Wikipedia says “Digital marketing is the component of marketing that utilises internet and online based digital technologies such as desktop computers, mobile phones and other digital media and platforms to promote products and services”

In this evolving world, it is so important that we understand this crucial aspect of marketing and are not afraid of the possibilities it can create.

Join Niamh Taylor and us on 23 June @12pm for a one-hour session. A ‘How To’ guide on getting the most out of Digital, covering areas such as website content writing to social media advertising.

Niamh Taylor, Managing Director of Digital24, is a multi award-winning digital marketing expert and a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing with over 20 years experience, both online and offline, across B2B, B2C and public sector.
