Fundraising from the business sector: lessons learned
In this session Jo Boardman will discuss the impact of diversifying your income to include a range of opportunities from the business sector - whether through in-kind gifts, corporate social responsibility programmes or sponsorship. Participants will be provided with information, tips on how to engage with the sector, target the sector, develop and maintain your corporate relationships, as well as given updates and lessons learned from the work undertaken during the ICP programme. This will be an excellent opportunity for those museums which are considering the potential benefits of working with businesses to come along and get advice, guidance and support on how to begin that journey. It will also give those museums already working collaboratively with businesses an opportunity to share their knowledge, skills, expertise and top tips with others.
