Business Ambassadors

Our business ambassadors help us to spread the hospice message about the services we can offer people with a life-limiting illness. Telling it to the right people, using the right methods, in the right place, at the right time.  Helping us to correct misconceptions, encourage support and making sure that patients and families who could benefit from our outstanding care and services get to hear about them and use them.  Of course, if our business ambassadors have a great fundraising idea or opportunity we love to hear about it, but, the fundamental, primary function of the role is to feed the free flow of consistent and accurate communication about the hospice whenever the opportunity arises.

Business ambassadors may use their existing networks to help expand ours.  They can put us in touch with new supporters, bring valuable skills and experience to the hospice, offer additional resources and/or promotional opportunities.  They help us build our Facebook and Twitter communities and suggest creative ways to raise our profile, increase the efficiency and effectiveness of our communication and improve understanding of what we do.

The time commitment is up to the ambassador: it can be minimal or more.  There are three meetings a year which are usually well attended by the business ambassador network members. Twice a year a newsletter will be sent to the ambassadors around February and August to keep everyone up to date, along with quarterly lists of forthcoming hospice activities and events. Information about the services, videos, leaflets etc can all be provided to ambassadors if they would find this helpful.
