What is Link UP Flash Consulting?

Flash Consulting events are a fun and efficient way to bring about change.

Our Flash Consulting events match Skilled Volunteers to small and medium sized London-based Charities, Social Enterprises and Community Groups (Social Good Organisations) in a one-off ‘advice and guidance’ session aimed at problem solving.

Each 2 hour Flash Consulting event hosts multiple 1:1 matches of Skilled Volunteers and Social Good Organisations to work through a challenge currently facing the organisation.

Events focus on an area that we know small charities need to develop such as Digital Marketing / Social Media, Organisational Development, Communications and Strategy.

Link UP works behind the scenes before each event with Volunteers and Organisations to ensure each match is productive and beneficial.

Flash Consulting events take place throughout the year. Check back for announced dates, or Subscribe to stay updated on our activities and events.

What do participants say?

I had such a great session with Grazia and Chris. Frankly, I didn't want us to leave, they both brought wisdom, clarity and direction to the universe of tasks I had on my mind.

Really helpful session - got a lot of good tips and advice. Has helped me look at different ways to tackle issues.

Loved it. Have a very clear plan of action now and some new things to get to grips with.

It always helps to talk things through; it sparks creativity and energy.

Well run and duration is good for time I have available.

Great, simple, easy way to support doing good in the world.

Good to think of best practice for my own business and then to put this in action for the local community.

Straightforward set up, love the format of having one hour, it flew by really quickly!

I really enjoyed the event - I've found volunteering with Link Up London to be great so far, rewarding and interesting and it's definitely something I want to do more of.
