To move your venue out of a group or consortium and go it alone is, without question, a complex, sensitive undertaking. You'll be rethinking the principles of what it means to work for 'your' organisation and re-examining the nuanced opinions and demands of 'your' audience and 'your' staff.
There'll be new technical requirements for you to consider and you might need to think your approach to your audience alongside weighing up the benefits of short-term disruption versus long-term incremental change. However, while this is a challenging time, it's also a great opportunity to reaffirm the identiy of your organisation and connect with your audiences more deeply.
This whitepaper explores the areas of your operation that will be affected by the change, the questions you'll need to ask about them and the best way forward in each case. In addition, we offer tips for planning, setting milestones and communication to help you and your organisation get to your goal smoothly and successfully.
