About this event

Join us for our virtual Charity Social! It's an opportunity for anyone involved in the charity sector to listen to superb speakers, pick up tips and share experiences with each other in a relaxed informal setting!

This event is open to anyone. Whether you've been in the sector for 20 years or 2 days there are always things to learn from each other or things that people can learn from you. As well as picking up hints, tips and advice from our brilliant speaker and others you'll get a virtual group hug, with so many like minded people in one place!

IMPORTANT: You will be sent the joining link in your confirmation message and email after sign up!!!

4pm - Start

We will have two superb speakers, followed by an open forum for discussion.

First Speaker: Emily Petty

Emily has been a professional fundraiser for over 20 years. Three years ago she went freelance and became a consultant, trainer and coach. She helps fundraising leaders and their teams to work smarter, achieve their goals and love what they do. She will be speaking about how to be yourself at work.

It's tiring trying to be someone we think we should be. BUT often we don't spend time identifying what our values and strengths are. If we know ourselves better and work to our strengths we can be more productive, have stronger working relationships and enjoy work a lot more.

We will look at how to find your values, a tool to help you build your confidence and how to have empathy for those around you. The session will be interactive with exercises for people to do as we go along.

Second Speaker: David Burgess, Director of Apollo Fundraising

Speaker presentation details to be confirmed at a later date.

5pm - Close

See you there!
