Boosting Your Assets: the Pros and Cons of developing new ideas

Are you a curious and creative arts leader, sector specialist or boundary breaking creative entrepreneur? Are you working in an industry experiencing unprecedented levels of uncertainty and change?

Would you like to join in an exploration of the pros and cons of developing ideas for new customers and audiences, or whether you should expand or change your offers to them?

Then join our Boosting Resilience Open Learning Workshop and during this half-day session you will make strategic decisions to:

  • Identify areas for innovation to make most of your existing assets
  • Review existing activity to ensure a good strategic fit and focus
  • Think about distinctiveness of your offer and messaging – how might you make more of your strengths
  • Design strategic experiments to test how you move towards a more resilient organisation.

Our day is led by Claire Pattison, Manchester Metropolitan University Boosting Resilience delivery led, and the fantastic Isla Wilson, founder of Ruby Star Associates, who is excels at challenging your thinking.
