Charity Times Leadership Network FAQs

How do I log in?

You can login to your membership portal by visiting www.charitytimes.com and clicking the ‘login’ button on the right-hand side of the navigation toolbar. If you have any issues or questions, please reach out to Shannon.Woods@CharityTimes.com.

What are my membership benefits and how can I access them?

There’s a number of great benefits of the network, including free access to forums and conferences, daily emails from our editor and free entries for the annual awards. To access the full list click the ‘membership benefits’ button under leadership network.

How is the network economically viable for a charity?

Our network increases charity productivity, connectivity and efficiency through support, networking, and updates. This professional development service allows you to gain access to events which further your connections and knowledge, increase your exposure through events and our news site whilst also learning how to deal with issues in a way that reduces your expenditure on unnecessary ventures. All of this increases your revenue and reduces your expenditure, more than the price of the subscription – especially due to our tiered prices. Furthermore, our price covers a yearly subscription to the professional development service that provides a higher level of knowledge gain and interactivity than our competitors, for a significantly lower cost! For instance, the Chief Executive Package from Charity Finance costs £900!

Is the network relevant for a corporate entity that works with charities?

Yes, we give you unique insights into the charity market and would allow you to target charities more knowledgably and effectively with a true understanding of the volatile market. You would be able to understand how charities are cutting costs, how they’re dealing with the current recruitment crisis and even keep up-to-date on charity partnerships.

It also gives you the unique opportunity to meet new decision makers and foster new relationships. We have funders, associations & media companies as a part of our network as well as charities.

Does your network have any physical networking opportunities?

Yes – our network provides you with FREE attendance to our Charity Times Leadership Forums and Charity Times Annual Conference. This allows you to network with your fellow charity leaders in person. Also included in your membership is free entry to the Charity Times Awards, where you will then get an invitation to book a table at our annual awards event.

Why is your network different to other similar services?

We have a dedicated team of expert journalists finding out the most important and relevant insights charity leaders need in the modern day. Our editor works with charities and membership bodies to provide the content you want to read.

We also go straight to the source, getting opinion pieces, Q&As and interviews with CEOs and senior leadership teams discussing leadership, best practice and issues within the sector. If you want, you can submit your own pieces by getting in touch with our editor lauren.weymouth@charitytimes.com or senior reporter Melissa.moody@charitytimes.com.

And finally, we provide free events and other services – generally for a lower cost than competing memberships.

Can I change my details or switch my membership to a different person?

Yes, please reach out to Shannon.Woods@CharityTimes.com and she will get this changed over for you.

Is a network subscription organisational or individual?

Our network subscriptions are offered on an individual basis, but we can offer 10-person charity or corporate-wide licences for £1400.
