How do I know how well we are doing?

How do I know how well we are doing?

What on earth are they doing?

One of the scariest moments of going from being a successful ‘minion’ to a manager is that moment when you realise that you don’t know what is happening.

You can look very carefully at the folk you are managing, but you cannot watch every mouse click and keyboard tap and screen flick. You don’t want to be one of those managers who thinks that you can do everything better than your staff. A manager who micro-manages, picks up on every detail of every piece of work done by their staff.

This situation is unpleasant for the staff, unpleasant for the manager and inefficient, as every piece of work is being done twice.

Similarly, how do you know what is happening with your resources? Are your finances in a good state? Is money coming in?

For charities there are questions like… did the people who donated last year donate this year? If not, why not?

If they did give this year, did they increase their donation?

So many questions, so little time.

To manually go through every piece of data takes forever.

That is why I am running the next Salesforce Lunch and Learn. To look at reports…

In Salesforce, once you have written a report, it will keep on running with current data. So you can run it against the last 3 months of data and it will update so that no matter what data you run it on, you will get the last 3 months of data.

Within the Salesforce Non Profit Success Pack there are a number of reports that are particularly aimed at donations and comparing this year to previous year.

21st October from 12noon to 12:45 we will be looking at these reports and how you can use them.

See you there.

Are you getting enough business?

What is the easiest business to win?

Anyone who has been in business knows that word of mouth is the easiest to win.

Do you have a referral strategy?

You mean you CAN have a strategy for word of mouth?

Most business women and men do not have a business strategy for referrals. If you build your referrals then you make more word of mouth business.

I am now setting up a Training Club that will address just these issues… but I am not an expert. So, I have Sarah Owen who is a world-renowned expert in building businesses through a referral strategy.

The Training Club will meet once every month. We will have two high-quality speakers. Each will speak or train for an hour on some aspect of building your business. In between there will be a break for networking or doing what you have just learned.

Sarah Owen will be presenting her training materials at each of the first six meetings.

Meetings will run from 9am to 12noon at the Beacon Centre in Llanelli (SA14 8LQ).

First meeting is on 21st August 2018.
