Charity Technology Breakfast Briefing: How we procure in the changing world of IT

26 June 2018 Events London

Interactive breakfast seminars which provide a unique forum for open debate and an opportunity to connect with your peers.

Our next Breakfast Briefing, how we procure in the changing world of IT, will explore the processes charity organisations should undertake before making investments in technology and how charities can get the most out of their partnership with suppliers.

We have worked together with the Charity IT leaders group to identify a topic which will provide functionally relevant information to technology decision makers in the charity sector.

Getting the right systems in place to make your charity run as effectively as possible can be a challenge. Join us in in June to discuss how building meaningful partnerships can have a positive impact

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%.
