What would you do with an extra million pounds in surplus?
With tightening funding environments, more and more charities are looking at how commercial activity can provide profitable, sustainable income to help secure their future. But there are challenges: risk, capability, culture and not least, finding opportunities that don’t distract from your mission, but actually help to further it. Our next Charity CEO Breakfast will focus on you how you can overcome these challenges to rapidly and profitably grow your “on-mission” commercial income.
I’ll be hosting a select group of Charity CEOs for breakfast on the 2nd of December 2014, from 8:00-10:00am in Central London, where I’ll share with you the best techniques from the business world, and you’ll hear real-life examples from leading CEOs who’ve “been there” and are doing it. Attendance is free, all we ask is that you come prepared to contribute and learn.
Discussions will include how to:
- Develop highly differentiated commercial propositions fully aligned to your charity’s mission
- Redefine customer relationships around value, profitability, dependency and social impact
- Understand and rapidly build the structures, skills and mindset you will need to succeed
Among those joining us to share their experiences, will be Virginia Beardshaw, CEO of ICAN and Vice Chair of ACEVO; Mark Lever, CEO of the National Autistic Society and NAS Academies Trust; and Elizabeth Archer, Project Director for the SENDirect Consortium.
To reserve a place, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on +44768 424147. I’ll confirm your place and send you all the information you will need. If you would like to invite a colleague, please contact me in advance.
