Resilience, Risk & Reputation

Thursday 17 March 2016, Pavilion Centre, Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge.

The collapse of Kids Company. Charities under fire for “aggressive” fundraising tactics following the suicide of 92-year-old Olive Cooke. Chief executive’s salaries under scrutiny.

2015 was an impactful year for crisis communications and fundraising challenges in the charity sector.By contrast, in 2014, 7 out of the top 10 most trusted brands in the UK were charities.

At a time when charities are under increasing scrutiny from the media, the fundraising public, how do you support and protect your organisation in 2016? How can we work together to maintain the support, hearts and minds of the public?

Organised by Mackerel Sky Events and MPAD, in partnership with the Chartered Institute of PR South West & Institute of Fundraising South West, Thrive Third Sector 2016 aims to bring together senior decision makers, fundraisers, communicators, executives and trustees to tackle those difficult subjects.
