Challenges and Objectives
Age UK Sunderland required a session that reflected on the challenges, lessons learnt and opportunities that had arisen as a result of the pandemic. The goal was to collectively agree and establish priorities, objectives and measurables for Age UK Sunderland’s Strategic Plan for 2022-2025.
Because of the time of year, we chose to use a Christmas theme for the day and the activities ranged from a ‘Christmas Shopping’ energising activity, to get into a strategic mindset, to a ‘Christmas Present’ exercise to identify the key priorities.
The day certainly achieved the outcomes anticipated, the Board of Trustees and Senior Team left the event with their objectives created having had a great afternoon!
“Karen and Lucy facilitated a great event, strategic plan objectives achieved and everyone enjoyed it.”
Tracy Collins, Chief Executive, Age UK Sunderland
