Strategic Planning

  • Date: Friday 17 May 2024, 10 – 4pm

What’s involved?

This is an opportunity to explore what strategy is, the activities and people involved and the components that make up good strategies. You will learn and reflect on the benefits of working strategically and look at some tools and frameworks that help, sharing insights and experiences with peers and colleagues. You will consider strategic working post-pandemic, explore some of the challenges as well as new skills and ways of working.

However you work – be this as a freelancer, or within an organisation, this session is applicable to a wide range of roles and experiences. You will come away with a clearer understanding of the value of strategic working and the impact it can have for you and your work.

  • Learning around the benefits and impact of working strategically

  • Tool, tips and strategies for working more strategically in your own context
  • Reflection on your journey as a cultural leader and the role strategic planning plays in your work
