Successful Forward Planning workshop in Southampton

Vicky Dawson, Accreditation Technical Adviser, provided a really useful one day workshop at SeaCity Museum in Southampton last week.

'Planning for the Future: Easy Steps to a Forward Plan' looked at how to develop a robust Forward Plan, developed with input from the wide range of people who have an interest in the museum.

After the event, one delegate from a small, volunteer-run museum emailed: Yesterday was a great day; I learned so much more about the dreaded 'Forward Plan' which as a result is no longer 'dreaded' at all!

This was the first of two Accreditation-focused workshops delivered in partnership with our Museum Development colleagues in the South West. It was a great opportunity for Hampshire Solent Museums to get to know Vicky who will also now be helping museums in the area with Accreditation.
