Thu 12 Dec 2019

  There are a number of reasons you may consider holding a strategic away day:-

  • Your income streams may be changing
  • The nature of your work is evolving
  • Your strategic or business plans need updating
  • You have come through a tough patch and need to regroup as an organisation, build morale and promote positive relationships

Away days are an opportunity to assess your strengths and successes as well consider what opportunities are on the horizon.  At Support Staffordshire we are experienced in facilitating away days and using us has the following advantages:-

  • An external facilitator enables the whole board and senior team to actively participate in the session
  • We can assist in planning the day as well as bringing a whole range of tools & techniques to ensure that everyone is fully involved
  • We will keep the day on track by effective moderating and ensuring that there is good quality debate through professional facilitation
  • Our facilitator will motivate attendees by ensuring all are aware of the outcomes from the day and the overall benefit
  • We can challenge internal assumptions and ask the right questions, handling conflict by being objective
  • We are experts in the field of the voluntary, community & social enterprise sector, supporting and advising organisations both small and large across a range of subject matters.  This means that your facilitator comes with additional skills that brings added value to the day

We are able to offer this service to our members at a very competitive rate of £400 for a half day and £600 for the full day, inclusive of all costs.
