Communicating your impact to the public

South West networking group

5 October 2018

Demonstrating the worthwhile work your charity is doing, as well as the difference your supporters are making is essential. So how can you move beyond the standard impact report to communicate your impact in a more engaging and powerful way?

At this event, we looked at why impact reporting is fundamental and how to take yours beyond the standard downloadable PDF.

The South West Networking Group is a network of comms professionals working in UK charities and not-for-profit organisations in the South West of England and Wales.

Meeting three times a year in Bristol, each event focuses on a different comms topic with presentations, group discussions and networking. These events are a great opportunity to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The group is designed to encourage networking and peer-to-peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ and relaxed environment.

If you’d like to be one of the first to hear about these events, please email Sarah Cutress to be added to the mailing list.

If you’re interested in presenting at this event (or at a future event) or joining the steering group, please email Sarah Cutress.
