THE BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Warburtons engaged us to:

  • Support in identifying a new charitable partnership that would meet their strategic goal of helping families lead healthier lifestyles
  • Establish the terms of the partnership and develop the implementation approach
  • Provide an additional layer of due diligence to ensure that Warburtons could support parkrun as an organisation without charitable status.

HOW WE WORKED WITH WARBURTONS

To ensure a successful partnership, we:

  • Performed in-depth research and engagement, identifying parkrun as a potential partner organisation and facilitating an introductory workshop
  • Brokered the partnership, ensuring the appropriate legal and governance processes were in place
  • Planned and supported the implementation of the partnership, including developing KPIs and acting as an intermediary and critical friend for both parties.
