Preparing for GDPR: Set your organisation on the path to compliance

08:45 Wednesday 17th January 2018

Broadway House, Tothill Street, London, SW1H 9NQ

Data protection law is changing. From May next year, all non-profit organisations must be ready to comply with the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The Government has also just announced a new Data Protection Bill. Time is short and preparation is key. This workshop, jointly organised by sector leaders Adapta Consulting and Russell-Cooke, will give you an understanding of the legal and technical requirements of the GDPR as well as the practical steps you need to take to prepare. Through shared learning, you will identify key challenges for your organisation and map out the steps you need to take to deal with them.

IS planning and cake - exploring the pre-requisites for planning systems in a digital age

14:00 Wednesday 24th January 2018

The King's Fund, 11 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0AN

Information systems have never been able to deliver more than they do today; but, to maximise the potential, you need an integrated approach that will align your investment in technology with your organisation’s strategic and operational priorities. Information systems are only useful insofar as they meet your organisation’s needs; so it’s critical to be clear from the start about your objectives. Planning is the key!

Cyber security and cake

14:00 Thursday 22nd March 2018

The King's Fund, 11 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0AN

The 21st century has seen the convergence of two hugely significant developments: accelerating developments in artificial intelligence and the availability of data on a truly massive scale. Combined with the remorseless trend to sharing more and more personal information, these developments mean that organisations and individuals alike are increasingly at risk of identity theft, defamation and simple manipulation. New electronic weapons are being developed and deployed every day and we need to think much more seriously about what information we choose to store and how best to protect it.

Systems integration and cake

14:00 Thursday 24th May 2018

The King's Fund, 11 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0AN

With digital marketing and digital fundraising, organisations can no longer expect just one system to be able to manage their relationships with supporters or members – so systems integration is becoming increasingly unavoidable. Sadly, systems integration is a topic where the opportunity for confusion and conflicting advice is considerable.

CRM and cake VII

14:00 Thursday 12th July 2018

The King's Fund, 11 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0AN

Adapta’s CRM and Cake is one of the flagship events in the third sector calendar. Each year, the session provides a unique opportunity for stakeholders from charities and membership organisations to meet in confidence, take stock and share opinions of the CRM market.

Accounting packages and cake

14:00 Wednesday 26th September 2018

The King's Fund, 11 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0AN

Following on from the success of our previous accounting software sessions, this year’s event will offer an update on the latest developments for the sector, the state of the market, and a summary of the latest functionality. Delegates will be invited to share experiences of software and suppliers as well as discussing examples of good practice for selecting and implementing the right package for your organisation.

Case management and cake

14:00 Wednesday 14th November 2018

The King's Fund, 11 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0AN

Case management is a core activity for many charities, membership bodies, trusts and others in the sector. As with CRM, organisations can choose between traditional proprietary packages and systems based on platform solutions, such as Microsoft Dynamics and Salesforce. The range of options has been maturing steadily in recent years and this session looks at the choices available and the trend towards greater integration with digital and related technologies.
