About this event

Have you heard about theory of change and wondered what it is, how it’s relevant to the board of trustees and how it can help your charity?

A theory of change describes what an organisation wants to achieve and how it plans to get there. This free seminar will teach you about the importance of a theory of change and how it can be used to refine your strategy and improve your impact.

Esmee Fairbairn Foundation is supporting NPC to update its theory of change guidance for charities, to make this vital process more useful and user-friendly for organisations of all shapes and sizes. Aimed at trustees, this seminar is an opportunity to hear the very latest thinking following the publication of our new theory of change guidance in the Autumn.

This free seminar, run in partnership with the Clothworkers’ Company, will:

  • Highlight the relevance of a theory of change in great governance
  • Arm trustees with practical tips and tricks for getting the most out of a theory of change
  • Clear up the language around theory of change
  • Provide useful lessons from trustees who have been involved in the theory of change process

Our speakers include:

  • James Noble, Impact Management Lead, NPC
  • Lisa Bedding, Senior Investment Partner, Sport for Change, Comic Relief 
  • John McCrohan, Head of Strategic Development and Special Projects, Masonic Charitable Foundation 
  • Gail Scott Spicer, Trustee, Premier League Charitable Fund 
  • Alex White, Quality Assurance and Governance Manager, Premier League Charitable Fund
