External event: Operational plans by Community Matters

Operational plans by Community Matters

Date: Thurs 3 December 2020
Time: 10:00 – 11:30
Cost £5

The uncertainty of the past few months has required many of us to think on our feet, and quickly adapt our services and projects to deal with the pandemic crisis. Between us we have had to scale up, scale back, adapt and in some cases stop what we have been doing. But perhaps in the middle of it all, there has never been a time when it has been more important to take a step back, review, assess and then plan the way forward.

A clear and concise Business Plan is:-

• A vital road map helping you determine where you are going and how you plan to get there

• A support to key decision making

• A support to clear and consistent communication

• A tool and a key to successful grant applications
