Raising your Profile: How to best understand and reach your audiences through the right channels delivered by Ellen Chesire

As part of an effective fundraising campaign, whether you are targeting individuals, business or Trusts and Foundations, you need to create opportunities to share the work of your organisation.

In this session we will discuss what the audiences need to hear, and why – and ways in which you can reach them. We will also offer some overviews of some online tools which can be used to reach these audiences, as well as those that may want to work with you.

This session will be run by Ellen Cheshire, Community Organisation Support Lead at Inclusion Barnet, a Barnet Together partner. She has over 30 years experience in marketing, fundraising and project roles in the arts, media and charity sector.
