For a recap on the Big Wigs Challenge...
The Big Wigs Challenge is all about taking a £50.00 note and making it grow as much as possible over a four month timeframe (Oct 1st - Feb 1st), giving the raised amount back to Sue Ryder at the end of the Challenge period.
The Big Wigs Challenge is in its sixth year and is developing into an established business challenge, which can be a great, cost effective, team building tool. It’s also great for networking opportunities. This year it’s being adapted to include interaction on Facebook and Twitter and teams will have the opportunity to have their own Blogs to engage with people. There will also be two Workshops for teams to develop their team building and fundraising skills which will be hosted by top business mentors and coaches. The skills developed can be valuable tools both throughout the Challenge and back in the work place.
The launch will take place at Nettlebed Hospice on Thursday 15th September. Four Awards are then presented at the award ceremony which will take place in the evening of Thursday 16th February 2012 at the Hotel Du Vin, Henley. These include Charity Entrepreneur of the Year, for the company or individual who raises the most; The Most Innovative Idea Award, The Most Inspiring Individual Award and The Teamwork Award.
