Event description

Description

Zero hours contracts, commissioning patterns, austerity, digital communications and blurring of boundaries between sectors, all impact on our customers and our work.

We have noticed an increase in tendering and new players in the space we have occupied e.g. universities, specialist arms of large consultancies and charities themselves.

The pace of change is fast: Brexit, Trump, and Oxfam - all since last year’s MDN conference.

What does all this mean for the notion of working ‘for the good’? And for our own offer ? How is work changing?

Do we need to redefine what distinguishes us as specialist consultants?

This year’s conference will combine perspectives, discussion and practical workshops.

Our line-up includes:

  • Key note speaker Craig Dearden-Phillips MBE, Founding CEO of Stepping Out - a venture helping UK public services and nonprofits to develop new, more commercially viable forms of service delivery - and a regular columnist for The Guardian and Third Sector. Craig's book 'How to Change The World: The essential guide for social sector leaders’ was published in February.

  • Mathew Lawrence, Senior Research Fellow, Institute for Public Policy Research; Editor of IPPR Progressive Review journal of politics and ideas and co-director of the Centre for the Anthropocene. Mathew's book 'Future Proof: Britain in the 2020s' examines the economic, ecological, and technological trends set to reshape the country

  • Clive Bane, Director of B3sixty and member of EUConsult, who has been undertaking a mapping exercise to better understand the European and UK civil society landscape, including consultancy and networks

  • Mandy Johnson, Chief Executive, Small Charities Coalition. Mandy was previously UK Director of Partnerships, Change.org and has worked for Cancer Research UK, Marie Curie and National Childbirth Trust. In 2017 Mandy was rated amongst the UK’s top ten most influential fundraisers by readers of Fundraising Magazine

  • Jess Taylor, Director of the Equality Academy, with a reflective workshop on consultants as our own brand

  • Howard Exton-Smith, management consultant, with a workshop on tendering

The day will close with a glass of wine. If you would like to join us for an MDN dinner from 6.00pm please indicate this when booking your place and we will send you further details.
