Connect and deliver

We are committed to helping visionary organisations and their leaders to create and embed transformational change… and that commitment doesn’t stop when the programme ends. It isn’t limited to the 28 organisations we are working with. We want all cultural organisations to access the best support to create change and build resilience. So whether you are starting on your change plan or looking for advice about stakeholders, engagement, organisational culture, developing vision and strategy, we’ve developed change models, tools, and resources for you to use.

We will be testing new ideas and sharing insights. We will be learning from our incredible cohort and collectively we’ll establish new ways of working to help the sector change and develop. We hope you find what you’re looking for, and if you don’t, let us know because we won’t rest until we’ve delivered lasting results for the wider cultural sector. Tailored support, mentoring, coaching, leadership development, employee engagement, facilitation, strategic development… people make it work has the expertise and industry insight to support you and your organisation, so we’d love to hear from you.
