We are hosting the Watoto Childrens’ Choir again this year, and had agreed to a generous offer to promote this in a glossy magazine for every household in the suburb. But when we returned from camp and two weeks away, we could see that the glossy had been delayed and with less than two weeks to go, the community would be unprepared for this gem of a family concert / community event.
So I sent an email to the Round Table, and within a day:
- Cheers sent the event around the e-list
- the state MP, Paul Miles, had the event posted on his website,
- the newspaper had been contacted
- Bill volunteered to deliver 50 posters to businesses to display in their premises
- the schools added it to their newsletters
- school staff are asking can they bring their grandparents
- the glossy may still get to the homes, albeit the day before the concert.
When it counts, I’ll go with the trusted relationships over formal systems every time.
So browse this site for something you're interested in... get out there and mingle... and work together.
And see you at Watoto!
