One organisation. One vision. One voice? This briefing will address the evolving role of communications within fundraising and will consider the argument for an integrated strategy in your charity. Can greater collaboration between fundraising & comms truly align objectives & provide a platform for more successful campaigns?
This event is designed to provide space for charities to debate with other charities. As a result, there are no corporate spaces available and we will withdraw places booked by non-charity delegates. We will issue a refund minus an administration fee of 15%.
