Not-for-profit organisations often have an allure around them. Working for them can be very rewarding but the intention of ‘doing good’ can be sometimes be bittersweet when funds run out, volunteers cause issues, and branch versus head office politics become problematic. Join us for a panel discussion on the pitfalls, challenges and satisfaction of not-for-profit governance.

Our panellists will each share their experiences with working for not-for-profits, including the key lessons that they have learnt along the way. This will be an interactive session with plenty of opportunity for members of the audience to ask questions and discuss topics of interest.

Our panellists are all experienced professionals with hands-on experience of working with not-for profit organisations.
