Free coaching sessions offer from Deloitte

As part of their 5 Million Futures programme, Deloitte is looking to apply the skills they use every day with their clients to help charities build back from the impact of the pandemic. The topics that you can choose from to work through with Deloitte employees include:

  • The Challenges of leading through COVID – a two-hour session with a senior professional from Deloitte     
  • Problem solving through collaborative brainstorming – working with a small team of Deloitte volunteers (recommended as 2 x 40-minute sessions)[1]
  • Financial planning guidance – a personal workshop to support your financial planning through the pandemic (recommended as 2 x 40-minute sessions)

[1] Please note: specialist topics (e.g. GDPR, optimal governance structures, safeguarding considerations), should not be covered within the challenges you bring forward, as collaborative brainstorming are intended for more general problem-solving approaches.

Depending on the topic you pick, you’ll be matched with a Partner or Director at Deloitte, a team of up to five Deloitte employees or a Deloitte professional with experience in financial planning. These sessions will either be structured as a two-hour session or across 2 x 40-minute sessions. The first calendar invite will be booked by We are Futures and you will arrange any follow up call with the Deloitte employees on your initial call.

There are a limited number of opportunities, offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so please do sign up promptly if you are interested. The application deadline is noon on the 23rd of April but the earlier you can sign up the better as it will allow more time to schedule the sessions.There are a limited number of opportunities, offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so please do sign up promptly if you are interested.
