During the pandemic, I set up the New Business Trouble Shoot as a way to support agency leaders and new business practitioners whilst raising vital funds for The Trussell Trust.
Over a six month period I was able to provide a confidential space for anyone needing to unpick a knotty problem, talk through a specific new business or marketing challenge or simply boost morale for those who were flagging – in return for a discretionary donation.
As the cost of living crisis looms and recession clouds gather, now seems like the perfect time to bring this initiative back. Together, let’s raise funds, build confidence and resilience in our agencies and face next year on the front foot.
How it works
Very simply, using this link you can make donation of your choice to The Trussell Trust – the page will then direct you here where you can book directly into my diary for a 30 minute Zoom call. Your agenda. Your challenge. I’ll listen and help in the best way I can.
About The Trussell Trust
The Trussell Trust supports a nationwide network of food banks providing emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaigning for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty – including 4.5 million children. The Trussell Trust support more than 1,200 food bank centres in the UK to provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred in crisis, as well as support to help people resolve the crises they face. Between April 2019 and March 2020, food banks in this network provided a record 1.9 million food supplies to people in crisis, an 18% increase on the previous year and during the coronavirus pandemic food banks have seen need rise even further.
