What on earth is CRM and why do we want it?

September 14, 2020

For this mornings blog I’m going to take a broader view of what is going on, look outside the monitors on my desk and give you an update of breathtaking vistas, of change and development and innovation. Time to talk about the projects that are going on behind the scenes and in particular the software that is going to make all our lives easier.

I’ve spoken a bit about our CRM project and perhaps left you wondering what all the fuss is about, why would Chrysalis, who exist to support trans, non-binary and questioning people and their families and friends with

Congratulations to our Tour de Trans riders and support team. Paeton and Callum you are incredible. The work that has gone into the Tour by yourselves, Em your without whom there would have been no warm, no food and no vehicle and also by our Social Media team Callum and An and your tour manager Josie is truly humbling.

This evening we held a virtual pride for group members and volunteers. It Included a short speech from our CEO Andi and an LGBT+ quiz run by Robin, as well as a general hang out and chat.

Another great drop in this week, lots of chatting about all sorts of things from hair removal to voice coaching and many other things, some trans-related others not. Next week the theme will be show and tell – an opportunity to show off what we’ve made, done, or treated ourselves to, or our favourite mug or pet.
