Communicating Impact

How can you effectively communicate the difference that you make? You collect information about the impact you make and analyse it, but sometimes it is a challenge to communicate it well to all your audiences.

In your organisation, what you do is changing lives. Your work is helping families and communities to overcome great difficulties.  But you feel overwhelmed by the need to demonstrate impact.  Your work in the future relies on you being able to demonstrate the value of the important work that you’re doing today.  Your funders need you to show impact for every penny that they invest in your organisation.  But where do you even begin?

The good news is that demonstrating impact doesn’t have to be hard work.  You’ve got all the resources you need already.  You know the stories of the people that you work with better than anyone.   If you can tell those stories in a way that connects, you’re already half way there.

NICVA is delighted that Bespoke Communications has developed a three-part programme in ‘Communicating Impact’  as part of our training calendar, so that you can learn what you need to do to tell your story so that your audience really listens. 

The three parts of this programme are - 

1. Video Storytelling

2. Social Media for Impact

3. Managing the Media - TV and radio interviews

These will all be interactive, practical training sessions giving you the skills and confidence to communicate your impact better.

You can attend all three sessions or as many as you like. You need to book for each session separately online. We expect the demand to he high for these courses and places are strictly  limited due to the practical nature of the training sessions, so if you are interested please book your place as soon as possible.'s picture
