02:51:08
Does ITC assign/attach expert consultants for a period of time e.g 1-2 years to help with BSO strengthening/Strategy development and implementation upon request either probono or at a cost agreed upon?
Babucarr Kebbeh

This model is similar to the one we did in our ecosystem in the Gam ia , such workshop was facilitate by ITC and Nuria was in Gambia on this....good to see this again

To ITC: it would be useful to do a regional version of this course which the Commonwealth Businesswomen’s Network would be delighted to work with the UK Govt. and ITC and other BSOs in organsaiing?ation and Community Interest Company directly recognised by 54 governments across six continents committed to advancing UN Sustainable Development Goal 5 and the Commonwealth Charter focused on encouraging, enabling and embedding women in leadership and women’s economic empowerment through work in trade, talent and training.

To ITC: it would be useful to do a regional version of this course which the Commonwealth Businesswomen’s Network would be delighted to work with the UK Govt. and ITC and other BSOs in organising - is this possible?
Edward Bernard Ssekayiba
03:11:20
What advise would you give to a voluntary BSO that is almost entirely dependent on donor support with little own income. Adapting to new trends like digitalisation is expensive for us? Which strategies would work?
Stella Hackett
03:19:35
Benefit of one-pager is clear - versus long strategic document, which we probably don't look at very often!
Nana Poquah
03:32:10
Thank you for the insight in Bangladesh. Could you kindly clarify your priority sectors again? How does Apparel, Garments and Textiles (T and A) fit in: if it does? Not sure if I heard T and A ?
Leonila Guglya
03:56:53
Please do not hesitate to ask more questions to the speakers and the BSO participants! You could put them down here.
Grace
04:00:40
It is great to listening to other BSO and learning the experiences are similar as with our membership. I am Grace from Ubunifu association and we explored the most pressing issues from the membership and the key areas were to explore training to enhance capacity. One that was prioritized was how best to utilize the digital space and so we had a series of trainings. The companies were also able to engage in a partners WYLDE International digital platform to profile them where we managed to do publicity of the different companies.
Grace
04:02:15
The trainings by Commonwealth SHE Trades has been extremely resourceful, however most of our male membership feel a bit lost in these crisis season.
Ajuma Ataguba
04:03:04

Grace
04:04:25
Thank you Carol for your inspirational sharing
Stella Hackett
04:05:09
Can anyone speak to working on the BSO team's mental health etc. re COVID? What if you notice that your team itself is having challenges re COVID (I missed yesterday's session - not sure if this was covered already)
Stella Hackett
04:06:38
Specific to BSO staff vs members
Nana Poquah
04:06:46
