Last week Karen and I headed to Redruth, Cornwall to deliver a training session hosted by Questions & Answers CIC, another of the Community Capacity Builder UK online centres Talk About Local are currently working with. It was a long journey for both of us but as you can see from the video above, it was well worth it. We worked with about twenty people from local community groups and organisations in widening the reach of their work through a simple WordPress website and/or profiles with an engaging, human voice on social networks.
Most walked away having created something new over the course of the day and more importantly, everyone went away buzzing with ideas of how they could apply what they’d learned to their groups and small businesses. The positive feedback certainly made for an pleasant journey home!
