Upcoming Events

Our events focus around strategic shared learning for senior managers to gain knowledge and understanding from peers with the key aim of drawing out best practices. At each event guest speakers from charities are invited to give case study style presentations, sharing practical insights into current issues facing the sector. This is followed by facilitated group discussion. Our events are only open to charities, membership organisations and other non-profit organisations.

We have an enviable track-record for hosting events that address the demands and challenges affecting organisations through change. Almost 100% of attendees rate them as either excellent or good.

Supporting people through change is a critical element in all technology projects. The successful adoption of new technology always depends on people, particularly with the strong values-driven ethos present in the not-for-profit sector. We know that understanding the impact of change, communicating the change, and supporting people to adopt the change is key to successful delivery. In this session, we will explore some practical considerations and techniques to ensure people are supported through your technology change projects, and to help you consider and plan for any formal HR activities which may be required. Through case studies and discussion, we will learn what has worked well in other organisations, and what might help you to deliver these changes in the future.
