As part of CO3’s commitment to succession planning, CO3 is facilitating an action learning network for members of Senior Management Teams (SMT). Last year we ran a pilot SMT group when CO3 brought together a group of senior managers together with an expert facilitator, Roger Courtney, to manage the sessions.  The pilot programme was extremely successful as testified by some of the feedback we received:

About the Event: John Cook, who sets the forward news schedule for UTV Live, joins CO3 members to give an insider’s perspective on the News Cycle, News Decisions and how third sector leaders can impact on this cycle to have sector stories aired. With case studies and unrivalled insight into how a leading news programme is put together, this will be a comprehensive briefing session to help you think about how you can lead more effective public relations in your organisation.

CO3 has announced the development of a new website to help leaders thinking about mergers in the Third Sector.

AmalgaMate has been developed to share learning, tools and ideas from the merger that led to the development of Age NI. It is packed full of freely available documents for you to download and utilise to guide your merger process.


 CO3 is delighted to be working in partnership with NICVA and Stellar Leadership to deliver a partnerships, collaboration and mergers support programme. The project will offer a range of practical support services including:

CO3, the representative body of third sector chief executives has welcomed the CBI’s ‘Time for Action’ report.

Commenting Majella McCloskey, Director of CO3 said:

“This is an important report that all leaders in Northern Ireland must give credence to. CO3 agrees with Terence Brannigan’s assertion that it will be in working together that government, the public, private and third sectors can face down the grave economic challenges with which we are confronted."

Anne O'Reilly

In a recent Interview for the Business Insight section of the Irish News, one of CO3's Board Members, Anne O'Reilly, answered questions on her career to date:

What was your first job?

My first job after I left university was as a care worker in a residential home.

What qualifications do you have?

I’m a trained teacher and social worker. I also have an MSC in Leadership and Management. It’s so far back I can hardly remember!

For Northern Ireland to truly emerge with a stronger and more robust economy after the biggest global recession since the Second World War it will require all sectors that contribute to GDP to be innovative and bold in how they re-invigorate the local economic landscape.

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.
