Two-day online charity finance professional conference – Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 September 2022

As many charities start to re-establish themselves after the past couple of years and look at what the sector landscape is like as we rebuild after the pandemic, it is also just as important that we give ourselves times to refresh and review.

Finance teams across the sector have been crucial to keeping organisations going, with many of us working erratic hours, taking on additional work during the furlough period and implementing new processes, products and services to ensure we have kept delivering to our beneficiaries. Now it is time for us all to review risk approaches, reserves policies and the impact on staff wellbeing and health in light of the post-pandemic environment.

This conference offers the opportunity to take time to refresh and review, so we can better plan our next moves.

Over the two days of the conference we will cover:

  • Regulatory/policy review
  • Commission update
  • Digital innovation
  • Look at the role of wellbeing, mental health and managing stress
  • Managing staff remotely
  • Organisational resilience
  • Charity reserves
  • Leadership

What is included in the price?

Attendance over two days to; opening and closing keynotes, breakout sessions and panel discussions with Q&As.

You will also receive after the conference:

  • Recordings of opening and closing keynote talks (breakout sessions are not recorded)
  • Access to all breakout session presentations and handouts
  • Certificate of attendance for CPD hours
  • 1-1 drop-in sessions with Sayer Vincent
