NPC’s 7th annual conference


Connect with new ideas. Challenge your thinking. Change your approach to maximise impact.

NPC Ignites will help you keep pace with the changing landscape. We’ve lined up the innovative thinkers in our sector and beyond to shake things up and help you question ‘business as usual’ thinking. Join us to examine the key issues facing charity leaders today and explore cutting edge responses. Sparks will fly!

Are you a CEO or trustee seeking the latest thinking in the voluntary, or wanting to be challenged by thinking from other sectors? A programme manager or fundraiser looking to learn from others? Perhaps you’re a funder or policymaker wanting a different view on what is happening in the sector. NPC Ignites is for you if you’re looking for inspiring new ideas.

Highlights from the programme can be found below. The full programme is available on the event website.
