Nordicity leading two workshops for creative entrepreneurs in partnership with Artscape
Posted by Nordicity in Toronto on Nov 13, 2014

Nordicity is thrilled to be leading two workshops for cultural organizations and creative entrepreneurs as part of Artscape’s Business Skills for Growth series.

The Power of Data

On January 19, 2015 join Nordicity and partners for The Power of Data in Communicating Your Impact: What Creative and Cultural Sector Organizations Need to Know.

This workshop will teach creative and cultural sector organizations, associations and businesses how to harness the power of data in order to measure and track outcomes more effectively.

From basic indicators and tracking tools to more detailed cultural and economic impacts, attendees will exit this primer session with a stronger understanding of:

a) The motivations for capturing data;
b) Simple tools and tips for tracking and gathering data;
c) Ways to translate data into meaningful insights for both the organization and private and public funders.

“The Power of Data in Communicating Your Impact” is relevant to any growth-oriented creative and cultural organization, business, or industry association which seeks to reinforce its current approach to data tracking and impact analysis or find new ways to demonstrate value to funders and patrons.

Shared Services

On February 23, 2015, join Nordicity and partners for Stronger Together: Developing a Structure for a Shared Service Initiative.

This workshop will educate creative industry stakeholders to how sharing services can help them to achieve core goals.

New digital technology has enabled the automation of some administrative tasks and remote services are now routine. Today the cloud is a reality and mobile personal communications are “everyday.” In this environment, there is the potential to attain enhanced organizational productivity, knowledge sharing, cost savings and other efficiencies though the introduction of shared services between like-minded organizations.

“Stronger Together” will combine an informative seminar, best practices and insights from companies and organizations who have already embraced shared services in some capacity.  Attendees will leave with an understanding of how the introduction of shared services may allow for more time to focus on content creation, programming and other core mandates.
