Harlequin’s hospice roadshow a hit!

Harlequin’s workshop for hospice fundraisers delivers successful hands-on and collaborative learning.

On Wednesday 5 March 2014 at the Wrightington Hotel, Harlequin hosted a think-tank and training workshop especially for its hospice clients in the North West. The day encouraged a collaborative approach to learning, and provided an opportunity for hospice fundraisers to feedback their ideas for future software development.

Over a long history of Harlequin user group think-tanks, hospice clients have helped to shape the Events, Volunteers and Dedications modules within Harlequin software as well as the Legacies and In Memoriam functionality.

Kate Ellis, Director at Harlequin comments: “Training on the day focused on making the most of the Event Management module and the reporting tools within the software. Delegates created a replicable template for an entire event with targets, budget, tasks, alerts and an invitation structure. It was great to see delegates sharing tips and ideas on how to run more streamlined, profitable events. It was also rewarding to see delegates expand their knowledge of report building and share best practice insights about structuring queries.”

Feedback about the event marks the day as a complete success as reflected by Twitter comments:

  • “Fantastic @HarlequinCRM user group session..only an hour or so in!!! Learning SO much!” Dr Kershaw’s Hospice
  • “@QCHospice enjoyed a fabulous day of training yesterday, thank you @HarlequinCRM!” Queenscourt Hospice
  • “@HarlequinCRM brill session – thank you for your time!” Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice
  • “Great morning’s training with @HarlequinCRM” Hospice at Home Gwynedd and Anglesey
  • “Brilliant user group session with @HarlequinCRM today. Thanks Dominic and Kate.” St Kentigern Hospice

Kate Ellis concludes: “As part of our roadshow of sector specific events, our next workshop for hospice fundraisers will focus on the Dedications module in Harlequin, which is designed to reduce the administrative challenge of campaigns such as Light Up A Life. Once again, the event will aim to deliver more successful hands-on learning and take-away tips.”
