CEO Breakfast Seminar May 2016

breakfast2-sMay’s Charity CEO Breakfast Seminar will take place in the St Pancras area of London on Thursday May 19th. Over a highly interactive breakfast, we will explore how to build strong, effective commercial and business capabilities within non-profit organisations.

Specifically we will seek to understand:

  • What are the most critical capabilities for generating high value traded and contract income in today’s competitive marketplace
  • How can you rapidly grow them within your organisation and what are the hidden hurdles you’ll need to overcome
  • What are the biggest implications, both positive and negative of increasing your organisation’s commercial acumen

This event is for CEOs of mid and large charities by invitation only, and numbers are typically capped at 18 people. Breakfast will be served from 07:30 allowing time for introductions and networking. The seminar itself will run from 08:00 to 10:00, after which you are welcome to stay and continue the conversation for as long as you wish.
