New Pro Bono OR Project: RFSA Foundation Project

Royal Female School of Art (RFSA) Foundation Project

Strategy and business planning

To help the Board with the creation of a short and long-term strategy, and a business plan to accompany this.
Project description:
It is anticipated that the work will include:
  • A meeting with Cat Armstrong, the secretary & grants manager, to gain information about the charity, its activities and the available documentation
  • Aiding the planning of a Strategy Away Day for the Board which is scheduled for 29/10/2018 (10am-4pm) in - central London
  • Facilitation of the Strategy Away Day
  • Writing up a summary of the outcomes of the Away Day

Once the new strategy has been agreed upon by the Board, it would be helpful if the volunteer were able to consider how the impact of this could best be measured. Alternatively, this may involve a second follow-up project.

Requirements: experience with facilitation and strategic planning

Time commitment4 days for the core tasks (extra days would be needed to examine impact measurement).
LocationThe volunteer would need an initial face-to-face meeting in central London and would also need to attend the Away Day. All other work and communication could be carried out remotely.
