Reimagining technology to meet the evolving needs of fundraising

Introduction

Fundraisers are in the midst of an impact revolution fuelled by increased demand for transparency and global movements for social change. With the current pace of technological advancements, how we connect with each other continues to have a profound affect on how supporters and donors engage with ‘for good’ organisations. Join Salesforce and their Trailblazer customers to learn how they are creating personalised experiences, empowering their stakeholders to become part of their movement and to attract the new generations, where they are and on their terms.

EUConsult networking meeting: Brexit – Threat or opportunity for consultants in the non-profit sector in Europe?

Posted on: October 2nd, 2019 by Resource Alliance

Brexit – Threat or opportunity for consultants in the non-profit sector in Europe?

 

Introduction

Brexit is a regular topic in private discussions in the UK and internationally.

Millions of people have watched with anger, angst, amazement or amusement as the UK stumbles towards an exit from the EU.

Perhaps the exit will happen a few days after the IFC, October 31st? Or later? Or not at all?

Almost everyone seems to agree that Brexit is already influencing the economy in the UK and Europe and that this may get worse.

But only a few organisations seem to have examined how their income and their fundraising will be affected, and even fewer seem to have put plans in place for mitigating an expected negative influence of Brexit.

Many consultants seem to be at a loss in how best to deal with this topic.

In this session, we will address Brexit as the “elephant in the room” that will not go away.

How can Brexit negatively impact organisations, perhaps leading to budget cutbacks and lower budgets for consultancy?

On the other hand, could the difficulties and uncertainties caused by Brexit lead to increasing demand for consultancy?

What are the specific organisational needs that will be most in demand in the coming years?

 

Aimed at

Consultants working in the non-profit sector in Europe. Fundraisers with a particular interest in Brexit or with specific consultancy needs.

 

Learning outcomes

Better understanding of the threats and challenges of Brexit for organisations and consultants. Importance of planning and risk management. Identify specific needs of organisations and consultants.

Trends and opportunities for charity video

Posted on: September 23rd, 2019 by Resource Alliance

If you still want more education beyond the regular session programme, Learn at Lunch sessions provide the opportunity to keep learning even during the lunch break. Make sure you eat at the restaurant first, then head to the relevant session room.

 

Introduction 

Video as a marketing tool is constantly evolving, offering new opportunities and challenges for charities looking to harness its power. In this session, Ryan will highlight some of the key findings from Raw London’s latest Third Sector Video Report and discuss some of the key trends set to affect the sector. With an overview of ROI, planning and creative, you’ll walk away with a big picture view of how charities are using video – and advice on how to ensure you’re not left behind.

 

Aimed at:

Anyone already using, or interested in using, video within their organisation – especially brand, marketing, comms and fundraising professionals.

 

Learning outcomes:

Audiences expect content and so, there’s a lot of content out there. This has put extreme pressure on charities to keep up and continually publish quality content. But, how does the sector as a whole feel about video? Is your charity behind or ahead of the curve? What is considered a ‘normal’ quarterly or annual spend on content? Which wider trends are being effectively seized upon? To find out, we surveyed leading charities about how they plan, use and measure video content.
