CAN YOU HELP A GREAT SMALL CHARITY WITH A CHALLENGE?

We need CrowdStormers to put their heads together and help solve a challenge for a fantastic & award-winning small charity based in South London.

 

IS IT FOR ME?

  • Do you want to use your skills and experience to help a great charity?
  • Do you want to learn new tools and techniques for turning ideas into action?
  • Do you want to generate effective new fundraising ideas?
  • Do you want to meet and work with like-minded people?

If the answer is yes, then its for you!

You could be a student or a CEO. You don't have to work in the charity sector. And you don't need experience of having done this before. We will provide you with the tools and expert facilitators to enable everyone to participate effectively. All you need is to be enthusiastic, open-minded, and like working with others. 

 

WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?

  • You will get to work with people from different walks of life and with different skills to help problem-solve the challenge
  • You will engage in activities that use all your brain - it will be intellectually stimulating
  • And it will be active... you won't be listening or talking all afternoon, you'll be doing stuff too
  • It will be great fun
  • You will have plenty of snacks and soft drinks
  • And get to go to the local pub afterwards to carry on the fun and chat
 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT THE CROWDSTORM? 

Join a group of 25 like-minded people at our first CrowdStorm in The HUB Westminster, a venue so cool you need gloves to handle it. In a single afternoon, you and your fellow CrowdStormers will:

1. Be introduced to an amazing good cause - brilliant people doing great work (check out a video of them in action here).

2. Be set a stimulating challenge that will test your creativity 

3. Use great tools and work in teams to create and develop new ideas

4. Use visualisation tool to make the ideas more tangible

5. Then share your ideas with the group and compete against other teams for the title of Champion CrowdStormer

There will be loads of help in the form of interactive tools, an on-hand researcher, industry experts, consultants and, of course, as much tea, coffee and cake as you can cram down in 5 hours.

The event is run by volunteers but we are charging a small fee to cover refreshments and room hire on the day.

WHY ARE WE RUNNING CROWDSTORM?

Well, that is why we exist: to help awesome people to make a difference. CrowdStorming is in our DNA. Bringing people like you together to help small, dedicated organisations become the best they can be, and thereby making the world a better place. Our ethos can best be expressed by this fantastic quote:

“If you have a talent, use it in every which way possible.
Don't hoard it. Don't dole it out like a miser.  
Spend it lavishly, like a millionaire intent on going broke.”
Brendan Francis

We love CrowdStorming and we know you will too!
