Working with Corporates

Learn to form profitable partnerships


Working in partnership with corporate organisations can offer a huge amount of opportunity to charities and social enterprises. But how can you access the right people and ensure that yours is an organisation that they choose to work with? What makes a successful corporate partnership? How can you ensure that the relationship is balanced and that you both get something from it?

A panel of speakers and case studies will answer these questions and more. Working with Corporates will examine the different ways that you can get involved with corporates, from accessing support from CSR teams through to getting your organisation on a corporate supply chain.

“Fantastic workshop @SchSocEnt. Really helpful…I need to come to more of these please!” Jenni Buckland

Five reasons to book your place

  1. Hear from the corporates themselves – you’ll learn what CSR teams do, how they are structured and who you need to be presenting your organisation to.
  2. Discover the types of support available to your charity or social enterprise including employee volunteering, fundraising, supply chain management and schemes such as charity of the year.
  3. You’ll hear a case study from a charity or social enterprise describing how they have developed long term partnerships with corporates. You’ll hear what worked, what has gone wrong and how you can best set your organisation up for success.
  4. Share ideas with other participants about accessing corporate support and the business needs that your organisation can help a corporate meet.
  5. Leave feeling more confident that you are able to identify the right corporate organisations to target for support and plan of how to get there.
