Introducing Craigmyle’s new recovery service
2020 has been challenging, to say the least. The pandemic was largely unforeseen and massively disruptive and we are in an economic recession that is rapidly gathering pace. Other events too have crystallized critical issues ranging from climate change to Black Lives Matter.
Like many businesses, many arts and heritage organisations and charities need to make major adjustments and have business development plans that require a major overhaul to meet the challenges 2020 has thrown up. In recognition of this, Craigmyle has launched a practical recovery service to help arts, cultural and heritage organisations review their strategic plans and fundraising issues effectively and efficiently.
Drawing upon decades of experience, as well as more recent multi-sector fundraising consultancy work, our new two-day service provides a dedicated consultant with sector experience to work with organisations grappling with crucial issues such as:
• How to deal with the gap in earned income, this year and as anticipated in the next few years?
• How to cope, if the audience numbers they can reach in person are smaller?
• How to build loyalty and support in an audience that may be meeting them digitally, rather than in their venue?
• How to remain relevant and address current issues.
Organisations may be focused on immediate survival. Others may have accessed the Government’s Culture Recovery Programme but also need to keep an eye on the bigger picture to achieve longer-term aspirations. We have developed our new service to specifically help organisations review and address these issues urgently and help organisations come up with a clear strategic plan along with recommendations for the future.
Siân Newton, Craigmyle director said:
“We provide a focused and time-limited strategic planning resource for organisations, involving staff and volunteers. Our written report includes an analysis of strategic opportunities, recommendations and an outline of priority actions required in the light of an organisation’s capacity to fulfil them. Now is the time to start working on the way forward.“
Our service is designed to be completed in only two days giving a clear strategic plan with a manageable price tag.
