Last Thursday we were invited by the Sale Locality Partnership to deliver a presentation about “Sale Safari Footprint Trail”, to explain what we had managed to achieve using the ‘Make Sale Smile’ £500 award we received back in May.
Wondering how best to quantify and present the information we had accumulated through our short feedback questionnaires from this event, Zoe and I were advised to knock on the doors of the phenomenally helpful data-wizards that reside at Trafford Innovation and Intelligence Lab in Sale.
Paul and James were keen to talk about all aspects of the Trail with us, as well as get a handle on our aims and objectives as a group. Their keen interest and wizardry with our data resulted in this presentation that is now live on their site. (click here to view).
It was a great opportunity for us to experience how the Lab’s skills in data-management, manipulation and visualisation could generate insights into our data that we’d have likely overlooked (we even learnt how to do cool stuff with pivot charts). So, as well as helping us to deliver a comprehensive and insightful presentation to the Partnership, thanks to Trafford Innovation and Intelligence Lab we now also have presentable evidence of our work that will doubtless be of great help with future funding bids.
We met Paul Westland and James Austin at an open drop-in session at Thrive, Trafford Housing Trust, at Sale Point (click here for details of their next funding support sessions).
