Things to think about…
Questions for you and (your Board)…
1. What elements of your current charity operates
effectively as a private sector business?
2. What trends or niches of your business are at risk to
the private sector? What new trends or niches could
you hive off as a social enterprise?
3. What implications might this afternoon’s presentation
have your governance, business structure and
HR/staff skill-sets?
