A conversation with the new CEO of NCVO, Sarah Vibert.

About this event

After two years of Covid and remote meetings, we are delighted to welcome Sarah to our first in-person meeting since the lockdown started.

Sarah joined NCVO in January 2020 as director of membership and engagement. She agreed to be interim chief executive from January 2021, before being appointed permanently in March 2022.

Sarah has held a number of leadership roles in the voluntary sector, most recently as chief executive of the umbrella charity The Neurological Alliance. She also spent time in senior management roles at Epilepsy Society, In Kind Direct and The Prince's Charities. She started her career in local government management, including working for the Mayor of London.

Sarah is a trustee of The Brain and Spine Foundation, a charity that supports people affected by neurological conditions by providing expert information, support and education. She also volunteers as a committee member of her son's primary school Parent Teacher Association.

Charity Forum brings together people in the charitable sector to meet leading figures from this and other sectors to gain the benefit of their views on major topics of current interest.

The Charity Forum is the successor to Charity 2020 and Charity 2000 which was established in 1998 by a group of people associated with the voluntary sector to highlight and promote excellence and high-level achievements in public and professional life.

How does this work?

Meetings are held up to three times a year, with a mixture of lunchtime, early evening and virtual meetings. The occasion provides the opportunity to mix informally before a talk by the guest speaker followed by a lively question and answer session.

Where are the meetings held?

Currently in-person meetings are held in London. We are grateful to sponsors who provide their venue to us free of charge.

What are the costs?

Charity Forum is a non-profit-making body and at present we make no charge for meetings. There is no subscription.
