Talking Birds is looking to expand its dynamic Board, to help steer the company’s exciting flight towards Coventry’s tenure as UK City of Culture 2021; to support the development of new premises The Nest; and help take our digital access tool The Difference Engine to the next level.
We are looking for people who are passionate about the things we are: audiences and accessibility, environmental sustainability, artist development – and Coventry. We are particularly looking for people with expertise in property law and building development, finance, fierce advocates for D/deaf and disabled artists and audiences [particularly in relation to The Nest], and people with experience of business modeling for software/Apps/digital distribution [in relation to The Difference Engine]. We want our board to be as diverse as the city we live and work in.
The role is voluntary and involves 4 meetings PA (usually a weekday 12-2pm or thereabouts; we can Skype you in if that’s easier!) plus an Away Day and individual consultation where appropriate.
We are also looking for Special Advisors who have some of the specific skills above, who may not be able to commit to Board membership but who are willing to offer advice/support on a more informal basis.
If you would like to find out more, please come to our Meet Talking Birds Social on Thursday 22 November anytime between 12-2pm (short presentation about the company’s work at 12.15 & 1.15) Floor 4, Eaton House, 1 Eaton Road, Coventry CV1 2FJ (vegan/veggie buffet lunch provided)
If you can’t make that date/time but would like to know more, please e-mail or call 07708 262 182 to arrange an informal conversation.
