Link4Skills launch of Member Workshops service

By Chris Ogle on October 24th, 2018

As you will be aware through the transition to an association, we have reworked the Link4Growth and the Link4Business websites. This has involved not only editing the websites but reworking the content inline with the vision and new operational approach of being a leaderless organisation.

Now our attention turns to Link4Skills. The purpose of Link4Skills – The people’s university was always to provide a simple infrastructure enabling any of us to share our knowledge and expertise should we wish too. That could be either online or as described below offline in your own locality.

So if you can imagine any Link4Growth (or Link4Business) member who would like to run a workshop or training session to share their knowledge or expertise can now do so easily through Link4Skills

For the simple administration fee of £10 the workshop would be loaded into the Link4Skills eventbrite account, added to the events on the Link4Skills Facebook page, and then can be shared across the relevant Link4Growth / Link4Business pages.

The advantage of hosting the Workshop / Training session with Link4Skills is the additional reach right across the Link4Growth network.

The Content of the Workshop is the responsibility of the person offering the training and under their control, as is the venue and pricing.

This service now provides the local Link4Growth team with the mechanism to enable us to share our skills and services with the support of the entire network. Of course this will mostly work within each local Link4Growth district, however leveraging off the Eventbrite community, Facebook connections and even Twitter sharing will provide a welcome boost to anyone who is currently offering workshops (or wants to in the future).

Workshops can be in a variety of forms, practical, technical, interactive… the scope is very wide. Please talk the local District Leader to discuss how this might work for you.

Chris is passionate about community and has been involved with Link4Growth and community building since the start in 2012. Chris now devotes most of his time to facilitate connection, collaboration and community in the district of South West Herts as well as supporting the Link4Growth Association.
