Charity Times Annual Conference 2018

Leading in difficult times

De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, London
10 May 2018

This conference attracts up to 7 hours CPD

The Charity Times Annual Conference returns in 2018, at a time when the forecast for the sector is settling in some areas, but becoming unsettled in others.

Brexit, contracting, reputational damage, technology and ethical issues all put charity leaders under increasing pressure to prepare for scenarios – yet these are not universally negative and all offer opportunities if they are treated correctly.

Leadership: Governance and reputational risks are major concerns to UK charities, but what defines good governance and what are the skills required for a strong leader?

Politics: Brexit dominates, but the more subtle shifts in contracting offer another set of challenges. Will the administration of the future protect or revolutionise the sector?

Funding: After a year filled with funding and legislative change, securing funding also remains an ongoing concern for many charities. But with fraud and cyber risks at an all-time high, GDPR imminent and governance firmly under the spotlight, how can charities gain control over the threats and continue to meet their promises?

Investment: Investment markets have been swaying through the volatility and charities have been under pressure to seek new and fruitful sustainable opportunities. Is there light between the cracks?

Technology: From donations to delivery, technology will change the face of the charity sector. But how can charities keep up with the pace, and how do they keep themselves safe in the process?

This annual event covers these issues from a range of angles, seeking to offer practical solutions to problems sector leaders face in their roles.
