Shared Ambition – Dynamic Audience Strategies
for Marketing, Fundraising & Audience Development
Who is it for?
For large organisations, the CEO, Head of Marketing and Head of Fundraising will need to come to all sessions to get the full benefit. Organisations with smaller teams require the CEO and one relevant member of the team to attend.
This programme supports the development of new marketing, fundraising and audience strategies to ensure your organisation’s survival.
We will work to support you and help you identify where your audiences and income will come from, taking into account current trends and opportunities.
Address the current challenges specific to your organisation
How the CEO/Organisation leader and their senior Marketer and Fundraiser work and plan together can make a huge impact on your organisation’s resilience.
This programme helps you, as a team, work out a plan for the tricky here-and-now and beyond. We’ll look at how you are going to reach, engage and build relationships with audiences and endure as a business.
You’ll work together to make a plan to take your organisation forward, with refreshed audience, marketing and fundraising strategies.
24 organisations can take part – we are looking for organisations keen to re-think audiences, marketing and fundraising strategies.
The programme is delivered entirely online. This activity is part of the Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy Sector Support Organisation programme funded by Arts Council England (ACE), and the Centre for Cultural Value will be working to collect and share your experiences as part of this group.
Here’s what some previous participants (Jane Macpherson – Sadler’s Wells; and Lorna Clayton-Rawle – The Tetley) have to say:
There are five elements to Shared Ambition – Dynamic Strategies:
- Online Workshops
- Small-Group Facilitated Sessions
- Breakfast Briefings
- Group Presentations
- On-going Coaching
Learning from, sharing with and supporting each other is an important part of the programme. This is a safe space to speak freely and candidly about challenges you face, as we help you work towards solutions.

We will bring together a panel made up from our speakers, facilitators and funders to respond to your presentations. We will provide feedback, and presentation training support as needed.
Working in your small group and with your appointed facilitator, you can access three online group coaching sessions between April and September 2021. These are an opportunity to check in with your group, share what you are finding difficult and what’s working well.
Sessions will be two hours each and take place in May, July, and September.
