The next Breakfast Club will take place on 5th February, 8.30am – 11am, and will include the following:
FUNDRAISING STRATEGY – how the magic roundabout and a 4 way junction can help you think more clearly, with Richard Sved, Founding Director of 3rd Sector Mission
With over 20 years’ experience in the charity sector, including leading the fundraising function of eight national charities, and working with countless others, Richard has for many years been keen to learn from successes and failures wherever he’s been – particularly on fundraising strategy development. In this session, he’ll share three models that have helped him to think differently about how he looks at strategic development.
Putting supporters at the heart of everything, with Sarah Tavener and Louise Wells, Mines Advisory Group (MAG)
A key element of MAG’s fundraising strategy has been working to make the experience of supporting the charity as great as possible, (as opposed to simply a cash transaction). In this dynamic session Sarah and Louise explain some of the ways they’ve gone about this, including:
- How this approach contributed to the extraordinary success of their Radio 4 Appeal (it raised more than any other in Radio 4 Appeal history.)
- Fresh results and lessons learned from their charity-wide (including trustees) THANKATHON, happening in January 2020
- Other key lessons about integrating teams to deliver a more holistic experience for supporters.
Defy the failed Resolutions! How to set goals that inspire action, with Rob Woods, Bright Spot.
Just as most New Year’s Resolutions fail to inspire any lasting change, so the way most fundraisers and leaders set goals doesn’t really work either.
Inspired by the success strategy Rob learned when he interviewed the Paralympic gold medallist, Karen Darke MBE, Rob now understands why the goal setting technique a charity employer once taught him, and that your charity probably still uses, DOES NOT WORK.
Using lots of examples, he will show you what to do instead that is FAR MORE POWERFUL. Join us to find out how to raise your game in 2020.
