Workshop 1A: GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation came into effect on 25 May 2018. It represents a once in a generation change to the way in which organisations process personal data. This workshop looks at how your charity can ensure ongoing compliance and will clarify some common misconceptions.

Workshop 1B: Asking difficult questions about charity finance

Whether we like it or not money is critical to the successful long term operation of charities. This workshop will look at what questions trustees and senior managers should be asking in order to promote healthy and robust financial management practices in their charities.

Workshop 1C: Relationships with non-charitable organisations

Working with non-charities can present benefits and new opportunities, but it is not without risk. This workshop will look at how charities can manage relationships with non-charities including looking at the Charity Commission's recent draft guidance in  this area.


Opportunity to raise questions and network with other delegates.

Workshop 2A: Developing Strategy and Strategic Thinking

A well-formulated and executed strategy establishes the foundations against which charities can create, monitor, and mesaure their impact. This workshop will look at the importance of strategic thinking and how your charity can develop its strategy.

Workshop 2B: Managing relationships when things go wrong

Unfortunately it is not always possible to prevent problems in your charity. We will consider how to get (and keep) on board key stakeholders when issues do arise.

Workshop 2C: Conflicts of interest and conflicts of loyalty

With the use of case studies and possible solutions, this interactive session will explore how to identify and manage conflicts of interest and conficts of loyalty that may arise in your charity.


Join us for tea and cakes, and a further opportunity to network with other delegates and the speakers.
