Charity Leaders' Summit

Spend the day learning from exceptional leaders and hear how they overcame challenges similar to those you’re facing. You will leave inspired, with fresh perspectives and renewed purpose.

* Coronavirus update – As you are aware, Government has advised against unnecessary gatherings and for people to work remotely where possible. Therefore this event will be rescheduled to later in the year. We were really looking forward to this event (it’s our first leader summit!), but your health and safety is our priority. All delegates who are already booked on have been contacted and we’ll be in touch again when we’ve got the new date in the diary. Here’s a link to how we’re approaching the pandemic and how we’re continuing to help you others during this time.


This one-day conference is perfect for those responsible for shaping the direction, mission, policies, and major programmes of their organisations, including: executive-level charity leaders, not-for-profit board members and senior leaders in the charity and not-for-profit sector.

  • Build bonds with a whole bunch of leaders from a diverse range of charities
  • Get sound advice from those who are where you want to be
  • Revel in the passion and experience of fellow charity leaders and future-shapers
  • Debate the critical strategic issues facing the charity sector today
  • Ask questions, get answers and perfect your game plan
