This is a time of transition and charities must be prepared to adapt. The political environment looks to be uncertain for months. As a leader it's important for you to navigate through major changes and identify trends and tools that can support your organisation. With many difficult issues ahead, it's more important than ever to learn from each other so that you can continue to best support your beneficiaries.  

Join us and be inspired to shape the future of the voluntary sector. We will consider how future trends and tools can strengthen your charity and support you to develop as a leader.


  • Sir Stuart Etherington’s final State of the Sector Address as chief executive of NCVO.
  • Inspirational keynote speakers Ruth Ibegbuna, director of The Roots Programme and Danny Sriskandarajah, CEO at Oxfam GB.
  • A variety of breakout sessions providing practical tips and tools for your professional development on topics covering digital, funding, governance, volunteering, impact and more.
  • Expert advice on a specific topic in our range of 1-2-1 sessions.

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at chief executives, directors or senior managers of voluntary organisations. It will also be useful to trustees, chairs and anyone working closely with an organisation’s management team.
