Let’s Get Connected….

After several years working in direct sales and fundraising, we have seen our fair share of good and bad practice, good and bad companies, good and bad sales people, good and bad fundraisers and just about everything in between. We thought it might be useful to someone out there if we could, over the coming weeks, months and years, impart a few of the lessons and experiences gained along the way, whilst also taking a topical look at what is happening in the world and how those events can relate to our industry.

Our New Home

We were delighted to welcome the team into our brand new shiny office this morning. After a complete renovation and months of meticulous planning, we finally have the place looking fit for the best sales and fundraising teams in Ireland. Be sure to check back for more photos in the coming months.

 

 

Happy Hearts Day 2016

Our team had plenty of fun this morning raising money for the Irish Heart Foundation by selling pins at Booterstown Dart Station and in Blackrock. ‘Happy Hearts’ was also the theme of our weekly ‘Fun Friday’ in the office. The guys enjoyed games and a raffle, with over €500 being raised throughout the morning to go towards the brilliant work that the Irish Heart Foundation carries out across the country each day.

 

Let the campaigning begin!

With the General Election just a couple of weeks away, politicians are not the only ones gearing up for a successful campaign. Today saw the launch of our new donor acquisition programme working on behalf of Dogs Trust, Ireland’s largest canine welfare charity.

Our teams will be out and about in the coming months educating the public on the great work that happens at the Dogs Trust rehoming centre in Dublin, where over 1500 abandoned dogs and puppies are cared for annually.

Irish Heart Foundation

We are delighted to be working with the Irish Heart Foundation, our national charity fighting heart disease and stroke since 1966, to help recruit new donors to support the terrific work that the charity does on an on-going basis.

Energia

A real energy boost for C3 in early 2016 – we are happy to announce that we have started working with Energia, Irelands Greenest Home Energy Supplier and one of the ‘big four’ energy companies (gas and electricity providers). We were approached by Energia towards the end of 2015 and are looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.

More promotions

Setting the pace – our three newest Team Leaders are Ross, Caitriona and Kevin. All are already growing into their roles of managing sales teams and leading by example in the field. Well done to you all – keep up the great work.
