Occasional publication 1

I am a trustee of The Egypt Exploration Society and, as part of our publications programme, we issue occasional publications which are 

Studies arising from, but not directly connected to the Society’s fieldwork and research, Festschriften (studies in honour of... etc.)., and various other works are included in the Society’s ‘Occasional Publications’ series.

This and similar subsequent posts are very much in the spirit of these publications - interesting information and ideas I have found during my research which do not quite fit into the main programme.

This week I wanted to highlight one tool, one piece of research and one chance to inform policy on philanthropy.

The tool

Regular followers of this blog will know that I am a big fan of the Business Model Canvas.  I recently came across this presentation on business models beyond profit by one its creators - Alex Osterwalder.  I think it is really powerful and the cow idea is great (thanks again to Dawn Langley for this one).

Some research

New Philanthropy Capital have just issued a report on impact networks authored by Clore Fellow, Joe Ludlow.  It is well worth a read.

Have your say on philanthropy

Arts Quarter are running a consultation on the Philanthropy Action Plan launched by Jeremy Hunt in 2010 and they are very keen to garner as many views as possible.

That is it from me
