As a new member of the Emerge Project I’d like to introduce myself and tell you what I will be doing to support the Emerge Community.
My role is Benefits Realisation Manager and I will be looking after the next phase of community based activities along with the Emerge Team and community “volunteers”. I’m only working 2 days per week, but will be very flexible.
The benefits realisation activities will be looking to
§ support the synthesis of Emerge community and U&I project knowledge and experience
§ capacity build the Emerge community and share this wider sector
§ encourage take-up of projects outputs by the wider sector
I’ll be circulating more details soon but highlights to the end of June include
§ Emerge community activity weeks (21 April – 2 May)
§ A community invitation for Benefits Realisation Small Projects – community led and anchored in the projects (details end of March)
§ A community un-conference in June
We’ll be looking to support more ideas generation for new projects, looking at external funding opportunities as well as the benefits realisation small projects.
I’d welcome any ideas or thoughts from members of the community or offers of events/activities they would like to host.
