One of the key bits of thinking that underpins Mindgap's approach to 'unlocking potential' is explained here by one of my favourite lecturers when I was at Cranfield University, Prof. Cliff Bowman. It's only 3mins long but well worth it!
I'm a 1/3 of the way through some really exciting training that I'm running on behalf of the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership. The training is taking the form of 10 sessions held across Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin. Participants are mainly leaders of Charities and Private Sectors with some Local Authority colleagues too.
There is some fascinating issues emerging about how some of these leaders are working flat out to respond to some of the massive impacts on their sector. There's been a number of Community Interest Companies there which has been interesting to see the perspective they bring too.
The focus of the training is to get the voluntary and private sector working on how they might be able to form a consortia to be able to access European and Lottery funding through the Building Better Opportunities fund.
On top of all of that, it's a great opportunity to build relationships with about 70 Charities in the region!
Mindgap is trying to be a different kind of business. For starters it's based on some different values but also it's about a new journey for Dave. A journey from being paid at the end of every month since leaving school at 16 to carving a new space for him and his family. A bit of work/life balance adjustment!
