Beyond just being a technical reference, the AMS changemakers Bootcamp was really insightful into some perspectives and philosophies that we would do well to adopt in functional areas from communication to HR management, if we want to scale up our movement.
I almost feel like a new me has emerged through the AMS experience. From building relationship with the guest mentors who are now people I can count on as my guiding points of light, to looking for ways to bring the AMS content in other language to learners in Africa.
To refining the approach to media and strategic partnerships to even connecting with other courses in the Ideation Hub ecosystem….the list is endless and this is only the beginning! We continue to discover the tips given by the mentors and experiment them in our own local environment.
In addition, the knowledge and insights shared from each module by individual guest mentor have impacted on my creative thinking process and system of works. I have no doubt our organisation is on the journey to reach more and scale impacts. So far I learnt to:
1. Redesign our organisational structures.
2. Revisit and re-evaluate our impact making and monitoring process.
3. Redefine our financing and funding strategies.
4. Invest in impact reporting and storytelling.
I have identified how to become a business man with positive thinking, impactful mindset and being a business that can also effect social change.
I have been dragging my progress on the business by not partnering with people who are like minded but now I have started afresh and I have picked up partnerships. And also ensuring my partners have the same passion and vision connection.
I am so happy I was part of this African Masterclass Series; it is indeed an eye opener and I hope that by the end of this year using all I have learnt I can be a social change maker that makes a difference.
Thanks again to Ideation Hub Africa.
To take in people that will work with me based on vision and value alignment not with emotion. To approach move from been passionate to an organisation structure (do registration, set up board members, have necessary legal papers etc)
Consider our beneficiary as strong force in our programs and activities (we must carry them along and not assume what their needs are). I also learnt funding!
I learnt 1. Gathering/ building my team members in batches and constituency members by intensive interactions via face to face meetings, online meetings/ interactions across social media platforms/ handles
2. Website design/development
3. Organizational effectiveness being built
4. Enhancing my business products for sustainability of GGMI. I have gotten two clear products already, the third is still being worked on.
I have identified that delegation matters and can reduce a lot of burden on an individual specifically in an organization. Can't forget the tonnes and series of advice on partnership. I have really jotted down and I'm going to search for partnerships and collaboration especially for my club.
Notwithstanding, availing myself to other big organizations that can work through my club to execute tasks. Having an annual report is something I started which I will be consistent about. I have unlearned and relearned so many things from this series of sessions.
