Inspirational Talks


Bernie Hollywood, OBE

Day one Inspirational Talk at 11:30 – Let’s collaborate…connecting charities with businesses

More charities are looking to corporate partners to help diversify their funding.

However, businesses have much more to offer than just financial input – including time, skills and commitment of employees. We’ll explore 6 ways to help make that connection: Think local and informal, get talking, find a good match, make use of your networks, sell yourself and weigh it up.


Day two Inspirational Talk at 11:15

Speaker and topic details coming soon.

Check back for further info on this exciting talk.


Julie Bentley, CEO, Girlguiding

Day two closing Inspirational Talk at 16:30 – Women and Leadership

Julie Bentley will consider how well the UK is doing to support women in leadership roles. She will share some personal reflections and tips and will talk about the work Girlguiding does to empower the next generation of female leaders.
