Cracking Charity Chat. Ep. 21. Wayne Murray, Audience
A chat with Wayne Murray, Director of Strategy at the agency Audience. We cover organisational and funding strategy post Covid-19. We talk about the impact of Covid-19, the fundraising model being broken, who's nailed their FR and comms during the crisis, and the good bits that have come out of the crisis that we should keep.
Cracking Charity Chat. Ep. 20: Nathan Sparling, CEO of HIV Scotland
Chat with Nathan Sparling, CEO of HIV Scotland. We discuss a lot! Being a small charity CEO, being under 30, punching above your weight as an organisation, imposter syndrome, turning around an organisation on the brink of closure, and the value of being a drag artist on charity leadership skills.
Cracking Charity Chat. Ep. 19. Ross McCulloch on Digital
A chat with Ross McCulloch from Third Sector Lab - the guy that knows what we need to know about digital. We chat digital transformation (what even is it?), digital culture, Digital Trustees and Digital Leaders (the latter through SCVO), the role of infrastructure organisations in supporting charities to get better at and scale up digital transformation. Ross gets ranty about on-line forms, I talk myself into a hole of nonsense and there's an unplanned critique of funding. Enjoy!
Cracking Charity Chat Ep. 18: Matthew Sherrington
A chat with Matthew Sherrington, charity strategy and communications expert. We chat about his journey from starting as a volunteer with Oxfam in 1989 and going on to support and lead various Oxfam teams across the world in the nineties. We also cover his experience of turning around Greenpeace USA in the noughties, aliging strategy, comms, fundraising and campaigning, mobilising people to come together and take action in the real world, and representation of the people we support. And a bit of medieval horror.
Cracking Charity Chat Ep. 17. Sarah Hill, CEO, IDAS
In this chat with Sarah Hill, CEO of the Yorkshire charity IDAS - Independent Domestic Abuse Service - we cover: the commissioning environment and how IDAS has responded by changing its model of working (how and where), collaboration with others, the growth of the charity from a few hundred thousand turnover and a handful of staff to a £4m turnover and 120 staff today, and Sarah's leadership journey. We also chat about Prince Andrew and why only cats need meat. And Sarah refuses to sing. Enjoy!
