RCCIWA Share n Learn Online Sessions
In August we commenced our monthly Share N Learn online workshops, with two being held so far covering revenue streams and membership & sponsorship structures. They are proving to be very valuable sessions with lots of great information shared and very informative conversations. A big thank you to Simone de Been for suggesting the whole concept of the Share n Learn and for offering to facilitate sessions – she did a brilliant job at our first one. Based on the very positive feedback from our members we will continue to hold these each month. They are a fantastic way to share ideas, activities, processes, and ways of working as well as for picking up very relevant tips, tricks and suggestions. Our next two Share n Learns are:

  1. Tuesday October 26th
    10am to 11am
    How to Market your Chamber
    Attracting more members
    Value proposition
    Marketing strategies
  2. Tuesday November 23rd
    10am to 11.30am
    Business Awards
    A facilitated discussion on all aspects of running a business excellence Awards event
