Description

iMultiply invites you to an informal, entertaining and informative evening exploring all things pro bono.

If you have ever considered becoming a trustee, how pro bono can add real value or about the importance of building balance, diversity and strength on your board then this is the event for you.

About the speakers:

Elaine Crichton, Pro Bono Executive at Inspiring Scotland

Elaine is deeply interested in people and what motivates them and firmly believes in the value of bringing a diverse range of views to bare on a problem. As a fervent advocate of the sharing of knowledge and skills, she frequently lends her own expertise and insight, garnered through nearly 30 years in financial services, on a range of issues across Inspiring Scotland and other organisations.
