Digital Leadership for Social Enterprises
4th Jun 2019

We’ve joined forces with award-winning social enterprise Cosmic to offer local social enterprises and enterprising charities a unique chance to develop their digital leadership skills and make themselves more resilient for the 21st century.

Starting in July, Cosmic will be rolling out its hugely popular Digital Leadership for Social Enterprises programmes, at Monks Yard, near Ilminster. Each programme includes 20 hours of support over 5 sessions, where leaders come together to learn about how to embrace digital as 'the norm' in the day to day running of their organisation.

Investing in digital skills is a must for every organisation at this time, including those is the voluntary sector, but many organisations are yet to address this issue at senior management and Board levels. Learning how to utilise digital in your organisation has the potential to raise your competitive edge, increase staff satisfaction, raise productivity levels, meet users’ needs and ultimately increase your social impact.

Sessions will take place on Monday mornings, from 9:15am to 1:30pm, on 1st July, 22nd July, 19th August, 16th September and 7th October.

There are limited FREE spaces available, subject to eligibility. Find out more here.

After 2 sessions on the Digital Leadership course, I've finally found my groove with digital!
