The EFC is launching a new peer-learning and networking group dedicated to communications professionals from EFC members. The first meeting will take place from 1-2 March 2017 at Philanthropy House, Brussels.
The aim of this new group is to create a trusted and safe space for communications professionals who are interested in and committed to learning together and to co-developing approaches and solutions that can improve EFC members’ work and effectiveness.
The March meeting will to bring together 20 to 25 communications executives from EFC member organisations. The key objectives are:
- To learn about your organisation’s communications priorities and key challenges. What are participants, as a communications executives, interested in sharing, learning about or collaborating on?
- Facilitate exchange and learning around two or three communications topics many foundations are grappling with. The EFC envisages a mix of 1) broader, strategic issues such as challenges for foundations arising from the decline in media credibility; and 2) more specific, practice-focused issues such as communicating the impact of the foundations’ work, brand and reputation, and measuring the impact of communications.
- Discuss and define how to take this community of communications professionals forward and identify future topics for the learning agenda.
The draft programme will be shared in early February. Participation is by invitation only.
