The landscape in which charities operate is changing rapidly and as a consequence, many of the skills and capabilities we need to succeed are changing too.
Since 2001, the total value of individual giving has grown by just 6% while earned income has literally doubled, from £12bn to £24bn – to the point where it now provides over 55% of the sector’s income. Income diversification, social enterprise, and business model development, are now integral to the strategies of most charities, but the twin challenges of culture and capability continue to hold back initiatives and frustrate rapid progress.
To understand how others in your situation have overcome these challenges, I’d like to invite you to join us at our Charity CEO Breakfast, 9-11am on 26th January 2017 in the St Pancras area of London. You will walk away with proven, practical and directly applicable ideas to help you develop the three most critical areas of commercial capability, and to overcome the three most common cultural barriers.
These biannual invitation-only seminars are simply the only place where the CEOs of the UK’s largest charities come together in intimate groups to share their insights and experiences around some of the sector’s greatest challenges and opportunities. CEOs already registered for the January breakfast include: Jacob Tas, CEO NACRO; Mark Lever, CEO National Autistic Society; and Mark Castle, CEO Victim Support.
