|Heirisson’s role and criticality to success
|· In October 2013 Liz Pattison facilitated the update of the organisation’s strategic plan, a plan that Liz originally developed. This is was only planned activity for the 2013/14 year, although other requests for business mentoring and/or facilitation are likely to be received from time to time.
· In the past, Heirisson previously had a member as Chair of the Jade Lewis & Friends Board (Paul Faix); Sue McKenna assisted with proof reading and editing of publications; and Liz Pattison provided a range of business expertise. Donations have been made to Jade Lewis & Friends by Rotary Club of Heirisson and individual Heirisson members.
· Heirisson’s role assists, but is not critical to the success of Jade Lewis & Friends.
