Welcome to the KOKO Sessions.
The KOKO Sessions is a monthly coaching and mentoring clinic for people who live in Kirklees, and work on or for Organisations and Projects that are “For Benefit” in our community.
By “For Benefit” I mean charities, volunteer organisations, social enterprises, community groups and public sector service providers.
Why the KOKO Sessions?
My client work as a coach/collaborator is focused on projects with purpose and encouraging people to do what brings them joy. I have worked mainly with people overseas and further afield in the UK.
Having lived in Huddersfield for 20 years I have become increasingly focused on contributing to the projects that keep our community alive and thriving.
I am a Trustee for Hoot Creativity Works and a volunteer supporter of The Huddersfield Town Foundation, this doesn’t feel like enough! It feels like the right time to offer a service for my own community.
So that’s why I created the KOKO Sessions. KOKO stands for Keep On Keeping On and is a saying that I love to embody. Through the KOKO Sessions I dedicate one day a month to serving those who work in the “for benefit” sector, helping them to keep on keeping on.
I’d love to grow it to one day a week, so spread the word!
How can I serve you?
My background is in commercial industry and I have worked across product development, marketing and purchasing. This means that I have a slightly different perspective as I haven’t lived and breathed the norms of the third or public sector……..which makes it easier to challenge them!
Over the last couple of years I have supported local charitable organisations with planning for sustainable growth. I have co-created income generation and marketing strategies. I have also enjoyed working on resilience and strengths based career development.
The sessions are led by you, in that you bring your challenge, your idea, your worry, your vision. I am there to listen, ask questions and support you in finding your way forward.
So what does it involve?
The KOKO Sessions is a one day per month clinic with four hour long slots available for people who work for charities, social enterprise or community projects to be mentored or coached by me.
The idea being that you can grow strong and sustainably based on the work we do together.
Sessions are pay as you go, there is no ongoing commitment required and at £60 (ex vat) are intended to be affordable, but with a level of investment that encourages action.
