SWIDN GlobalDev Consultants' Group meeting: Adaptive Management
RSVP on MeetUp here
This group is open to anyone who works as a consultant in international development, whether freelance or as part of a consulting firm or NGO. Our events are generally relaxed and sociable and are an opportunity for peer support, networking and collaboration.
Rachel Haynes (http://flamingoforngos.org) and Kathleen Christie (http://www.kathchristie.co.uk) are co-facilitators of the SWIDN Consultants' Group. Rachel and Kathleen are both experienced consultants who have been actively involved in the group and in the wider SWIDN network over the years. Rachel is also a member of the SWIDN Board of Trustees. Please do come along to meet them, to find out what the group is up to and to share your ideas about what you would like to see the group doing and what you would like from group meetings in the future.
For July's meeting we will be joined by Josephine Tsui, international development consultant, who will talk to us about adaptive management.
As a way of sharing and developing skills focused on specific fields of consulting we’d like to extend an invitation to you to ‘co-host’ a future meeting. You might choose to focus on a specific area such as methodologies and approaches (to strategic planning, capacity building, consultation, contractual arrangements, or another area) or a specialist skill area like fundraising or influencing. Please feel free to make suggestions.
Hosting would involve providing a brief introduction to the focus at the start of the meeting and then facilitating a discussion orientated towards answering key questions and/or sharing experiences in relation to the focus. Please let us know well in advance so that we can ensure the focus of the meeting is publicised in good time for other people working in that area to schedule time to attend.
To discuss being a meeting ‘host’ please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see you at a meeting soon!
Please note that this group is for people working as consultants only; whether freelance or as part of a consulting firm or NGO.
