We had a terrific meeting on 6 July. Many thanks to Johnny Craike at Notting Hill Housing for hosting the meeting. The topic was “Using pro bono external coaches” and we had some fantastic input from Shola Awolesi and Cecilia Yardley about their experience of using pro bono coaches and what they have learned to kick off the very animated discussion.
We have put notes of what took place on 6 July in our LinkedIn group. The link is: www.linkedin.com/groups/8586408. Please see the events calendar for details about our next two meetings in October and January.
We are conducting a survey to establish a baseline of what coaching and mentoring is currently going on amongst Forum members. The survey can be found at http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/EMCCforumbaseline/ and is already live. Do please try to find 15 mins or so to complete it. The more charities that participate, the more useful it will be for everyone. Please try to complete it by 30 July.
