Social Value Strategy
Our strategy workshops support organisations that want to develop their social value strategy and processes. We help organisations identify how they can utilise their organisational strengths to create, measure and communicate the social value they create for communities. The workshops include examples of best practice we have used to support the development of compelling social value offerings. This has helped clients secure existing relationships and win new contracts.Price will depend on scope; please contact us
