Most third sector organisations have a strategic plan these days, but the evidence suggests that in most cases the plans are of little use in guiding the development of the organisation, or helping to make difficult decisions. The process of drawing up the plan, also often leaves many people who will be delivering it less than enthusiastic. This workshop will ensure that your strategic and operational planning processes enable your organisation to achieve its potential. It will be led by Dr Roger Courtney one of the UK’s leading writer’s on strategy in the third sector.

The aim of the interactive virtual workshop is to improve the strategic and operational planning processes of third sector organisations.

Participants will be encouraged to bring existing or previous strategic plans to get feedback.


To take part you will need access to an internet connection and smart device or computer. You will receive the joining instructions before the event takes place

Technical support will be on hand from the CO3 team.  If you experience any issues or initial questions about attending virtually. Contact us
