Organised by Mackerel Sky Events and MPAD, in partnership with the Institute of Fundraising South West, this year’s keynote is Debra Allcock Tyler – author and champion for small charities.

Allcock Tyler is CEO of the Directory for Social Change and regular contributor to Third Sector magazine. She will be joined by fundraising leaders, financial and legal experts, charity bosses and a host of case studies from the South West’s vibrant charity sector.

Following the success of 2016’s Thrive Third Sector, featuring keynote speaker William Shawcross – chair of the┬áThrive Third Sector 2017 will continue to bring together senior decision makers, fundraisers, communicators, executives and trustees to tackle those difficult subjects.
