What we learned from the Hereford workshop

Yesterday was the second Data Evolution workshop. We were very pleased to be able to welcome Herefordshire, Shropshire and Wales based organisations to the RNC’s Gardner Hall in Hereford. The general structure of the workshop was the same as our recent London workshop. We’ve once again asked Ben Proctor from Data Orchard to give us […]

Where can you get help with data?

We have started to compile a list of organisations that provide data support to charities and/or social enterprises. You can view the list of data support providers now. We’ve embedded the list at the bottom of this page too. We hope this will be an evolving list. If you are or know of other organisations […]

What we learned at the London workshop

Yesterday (Thursday 19 May) we ran the first of our Data Evolution workshops. The second workshop takes place next week in Herefordshire (book now). It was a packed session and we’re still digesting the outputs. We asked Ben from Data orchard who facilitated the workshop to give us his top five instant reactions. This is what […]

Marketing update number 3

We’re been writing to a range of organisations. In particular (but not exclusively) Councils for Voluntary Action/Service to ask them to spread the word about our survey which goes live on 6 June.

Which makes our Hereford workshop the obvious choice for many charity and social enterprise leaders. As our London workshop […]

Marketing update number 2

We’ve been getting the word out to charities and social enterprises across England and Wales. Well admittedly Wales is looking a bit sparse at present. So next week we’ll have a push there. If you can help us tell people about the Data Evolution workshops or get people to sign up ready for our survey […]

Progress (and data) on publicity

We launched the Data Evolution project last week. We’ve been writing to organisations, especially local infrastructure organisations. We thought you’d be interested to see the distribution of charities and social enterprises we’ve written to so far. This distribution is based on the postcode of the head office. It reflects the fact that we’ve contacted organisations […]

Really great workshops: not all in London!

Come and share As part of the Data Evolution project we are running two workshops for leaders of charities and social enterprises. They will be participative and engaging. We hope that everyone who attends will have experiences to share and will learn from the experiences of others. There is a small charge to cover costs. […]
