Epsiode 54: The RED January journey with Hannah Beecham

“i just went on the ride with it“Our second lockdown episode involves a chat with the founder and CEO of the hugely popular RED January - Hannah Beecham. She talks about the passion project which overtook her evenings became the hugely successful phenomenon it is today. There’s the glamour of the film industry, why it’s nice for people to meet their heroes and the switch to a full time role. We learn how it feels when something really connects with an audience and the power of community, there’s brutal honesty and identifying your key advisors. We get updates on both the round the block challenge and the marathon des sables. Kenneth offers some interior design tips and James scribbles a reading list. We find out more about behaviours, go behind the scenes at a charity and discuss the future of virtual events.---You can find us on www.domoregood.uk or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.

Episode 53: The Power of Sport with Nick Keller

“It has brought us closer together“Stocked up on beer and biscuits, the boys jump into the deep end with a member of the global advisory board of the world economic forum on sport and society. With such a heavyweight guest we kick off with the round-the-block challenge and changing the batteries in a toy unicorn. Luckily Nick gets us back on track as we discuss the education system, how it could be changed and the opportunity at hand to do so. There’s a conversation about planning for growth, societal tornadoes and the impact sport can have in delivering positive behavioural change. We take the silver linings from the current situation, look at how we can engage key ambassadors and communities both now and in the aftermath. We talk about how we’re coping, ways of working and super-empowering leaders through this period. ---You can find us on www.domoregood.uk or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.

Episode 52: Going Global with Ken Burnett

“When are you going to get a proper job?“For our latest episode, Kenneth got to speak with the man who inspired his early forays into fundraising, the confirmed BDIF: Mr Ken Burnett. We go global to discuss 43 years as a fundraiser, how he started at the top and worked his way down. Ken tells us how he was sat furthest from the fire as a kid, came up with the name Action-Aid as a young man and his hopes for the next generation of fundraisers. James is inspired by a Japanese monk and gives a shout out to Pliny the Younger. Kenneth wonders about charity leaders and recounts his never-before-mentioned appearance in print. We hear about how communications forms the basis of fundraising, why charity managers wish they had thought of IWITOT and what we can do to invest in training. After singing Alfie Waldron and Jean the Bee Lady’s praises, we finish our episode with a Geordie-off - Kenneth Foreman vs Nikki Bell - chatting through how current situation has changed the plans for I Wish I’d Thought Of That and their tips for working from home. ---You can find us on www.domoregood.uk or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.

Episode 51: Getting together to talk events with Rebecca Elcome

“Being stuck in a goods lift at 4am.“Dragged from broadcasting house, television celebrity Kenneth Foreman joins James to talk about events with a true A-lister on the scene. Rebecca Elcome has done it all, working her way up from intern to director at some of the country’s biggest charities and setting up on her own. We learn the secrets to good packing, how to have confidence in your own abilities and why eventers are the most passionate members of the sector. The nice folder gets another mention, there’s a shout out for support teams, the benefits of flexible working and why we should be trusting our teams to do so. James makes a bold claim to be more of a rebel, we find out how the best committees grew out of coffee shops and discover how we financed our trip to Amsterdam last year. Mentoring, three-month plans and the small matter of gender inequality get an airing.We have a couple of episodes stored if we need to self-isolate, but for now we’re chatting about getting together and the numerous benefits that brings.---You can find us on www.domoregood.uk or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.

Episode 50: Talking Fundraising at the Do More Good Derby

"Every organisation needs a good front person."For the big fiftieth celebrations, Kenneth and James treat themselves to a day out at the graveyard of the Emirates Stadium watching the DMG Derby. As with any good docu-drama, we're on a journey. There's the pre-match build up from the loudest pub in London including our fantasy fundraising eleven. Then we're off to the ground to stick the CEO in goal and talk ambition, moving organisation and our favourite bosses and school bullies. There's superstar fundraisers breaking the rules, curling the perfect campaign from the edge of the box only to see it hit the post and a steward-dodging pitch invader. James manages to miss the action, Kenneth changes his mind on the role of a good CEO and we all celebrate together with a sing-song.We're back to normal next week, but here's something a little different for episode 50. Dedicated to Jimmy Connors. ---You can find us on www.domoregood.uk or follow us on Twitter and Instagram. Get in touch if you'd like to feature or star on the show.

Episode 48: The benefits of coaching with Jo Stone

Episode 47: On the Marie Curie couch with Emily and Marie

“he was up for the challenge.“In the comfy seats this week we’re joined by Emily and Marie from Marie Curie, basking in the success of their podcast ‘On the Marie Curie couch’ which has been praised by both serious critics and your not-so-serious presenters. Though I’d imagine you’re more likely to be convinced by people who don’t accidentally end up in Luton after a night out. We discuss which team audio should sit in, where the podcast came from and how someone transitions from studying Astrology for Psychics to hanging out with Adam Buxton. There’s the importance of a marketing budget, waiting for the right campaign and painful footballing injuries. We hear about silent high-fives, handsome voices and why everyone needs a celebrity team in their lives.---You can find us on www.domoregood.uk or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
