CFG Annual Conference 2019
I am delighted to be co-hosting an in-depth workshop on income risk, sustainability and diversification at the Charity Finance Group (CFG) Annual Conference 2019.
With Helena Wilkinson of Price Bailey Chartered Accountants, we will be exploring issues around how charities can become more financially sustainable, including looking for different income sources. We will look at income trends over the last few years and how might this affect how charities raise money and what can be done to change a charity’s income mix. The workshop will blend a general update on income sources and their challenges/risks with practical breakout sessions to explore ideas further.
The CFG Annual Conference 2019 is on Thursday 16 May 2019 from 8.15am to 6pm at The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Broad Sanctuary, London, SW1P 3EE.
It is aimed at anyone working in a role that relates to charity finance – from finance directors, CEOs and finance managers to treasurers and trustees, as well as consultants such as senior accountants and charity consultants. Whether you’re just beginning your career in charity finance or you’ve spent years in the sector and hold a more senior position, the Conference programme offers sessions for all levels of knowledge, skills and experience.
With five streams of sessions covering technical updates, strategic insights, and practical workshops to choose from, the CFG Annual Conference 2019 is the perfect opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills in charity finance, meet with others in the sector and share experiences and challenges, and gain new insight on services and support from specialist exhibitors.
