We return to The Foundling Museum, which hosted our very first event, to learn how to look further to expand our skills. We will welcome Ann Drew, Director, Business in the Community (formerly Arts & Business), Katharina Steinkellner, Head of Philanthropy, Science Museum (formerly Head of Global Leadership, SOS Children's Villages International) and Kirsty MacDonald, Deputy Principal, Campaigns and Advancement, Royal Academy of Music, to discuss how arts fundraisers might learn from the wider third sector, higher education and businesses, and move across the spectrum with transferable skills.
Presenting our organisations as charities, talking to corporates and pitching businesses require understanding various mindsets and navigating different goals. It is about developing a language and adapting your skillset to your audience, and building confidence in doing so. Our speakers will first discuss their experience before opening questions to the audience. We will then go on for our usual networking drinks at The Lamb, 94 Lamb's Conduit St, London WC1N 3LZ.
The Foundling Museum will kindly open its doors at 6.30pm for you to wander around the museum's introductory gallery, which tells the story of the Foundling Hospital.
This will be our last fundraising discussion before we close the season with summer networking drinks in June.
