Worshipful Company of Management Consultants Charity Evening

The Worshipful Company of Management Consultants celebrated their annual support for Charity last week at Skinners Hall. Each year over £1M of pro bono consultancy is provided to its charitable causes; focusing on improving social outcomes. They work closely with the Cass Centre for Charity Effectiveness and have even visited Grow's partner organisation, Enterprise Uganda as part of their work with Youth Business International (YBI).

Working Chance is a UK based charity supporting women with criminal convictions into sustainable jobs. The Head of Operations, Cait Winters spoke about the benefits of their relationship with their pro-bono consultant from The Worshipful Company. The review and advice had significantly impacted their strategy, branding and the role their Board of Trustees played in the organisation. It was clear that both the charity and the consultant had benefited immensely from the experience.

To date Grow Movement has two volunteers consultants who have joined the programme from the Worshipful Company; one based in Poland and the other in Australia both working with clients via Skype and mobile to Malawi. During 2015, Grow Movement hopes to strengthen the number of volunteers that it has coming from the Worshipful Company.
