Overcoming geography: building major partnerships at a regional charity


As partnership managers in regional teams or local charities, we often confine ourselves to only approaching the businesses on “our patch”. We believe that national companies are beyond our reach and settle for considering smaller corporate partnerships, filtered through our regional lens.

In this session, Lila Dowie shares how the Demelza Hospice team have overcome this barrier to build major partnerships, including with Active International, Axis Europe and Berkeley Homes.

People attending this session will leave inspired and with top tips to build partnerships based on criteria beyond geography and have a real sense of the value your charity can deliver to corporate partners.
