Six reasons to sign up to #NPCIgnites

By Sue Wixley 10 June 2016

There are many good reasons to join us for our annual conference, NPC Ignites, on 12 October. Here are six:

Be inspired by our trailblazing speakers

We’ll start the day with a bang with our panel discussing boldness in times of change with: Mike Adamson (CEO of British Red Cross), Anni Rowland Campbell (founder of Intersticia) and David Robinson OBE (Founder + Senior Adviser of Community Links). After that, you’ll have the chance to hear from our inspiring speakers, including: Clara Miller from the innovative Heron Foundation in the USA, Richard Hawkes (CEO of British Asian Trust + formerly Scope) and Lord Kerslake with his view from Whitehall.

Get to grips with the burning issues facing charities and social enterprises

The landscape is changing fast—trends like Big Data, new funding models and systems thinking are shaping what we do now and will do in the future. Our conference will help you to keep pace with these changes and allow you to keep creating social impact. There’ll be speakers sharing new thinking on these topics and showcasing examples that you can learn from. We’ve selected speakers from across the charity sector, as well as from the public and private sectors in order to encourage the cross-fertilisation of ideas.

Learn + engage

You won’t just be sitting and listening in plenary sessions. Take your pick from eight breakout session where you’ll get to explore and discuss topics ranging from rebooting campaigning to governing for greater impact, making the most of devolution to innovations in measurement + evaluation.

Make new connections

You’ll get to meet and network with leaders from a whole range of organisations. Last year’s 180+ delegates included 40 CEOs, 30+ Directors (from Fundraising to Innovation, Finance to HR) and dozens of trustees. There’ll also be a host of interesting exhibitors and sponsors to connect with.
