By Alex Swallow https://twitter.com/AlexSwallow, Director of Resonate Connect and National JCI TOYP Awardee 2014.
On Wednesday the 29th of April Resonate Connect is launching in Manchester Cathedral http://www.resonate-connect.org.uk/event
The event is totally free to attend, Sir Howard Bernstein is the keynote speaker and there will be plenty of opportunity to network with other Greater Manchester business leaders (as well as a free bar).
We are looking for representatives of businesses across Greater Manchester to attend- the sign up form is on the event page http://www.resonate-connect.org.uk/event
Resonate is a free platform matching skilled volunteers to Good Causes. I have a background in the charity sector, including as the Chief Executive of the Small Charities Coalition and I know the importance of getting the right skills into voluntary sector organisations. Sometimes smaller charities can’t afford to pay for a staff member with the right expertise or they need a piece of help with a specialist issue. Getting in a skilled volunteer to help them out can make a huge difference to the long-term health of their charity and the quality of the service they are able to provide to the sometimes vulnerable groups that rely on their support.
As a National TOYP Winner last year http://issuu.com/jcilondon8/docs/jci_london_magazine_may I know the power JCI has to make positive change in the world.
Please support the Resonate Connect launch event by sharing the link with your business connections across Greater Manchester and encouraging them to attend http://www.resonate-connect.org.uk/event
Please also look out for the #EthicalManchester hashtag for the event, across social media and follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/ResonateConnect
