I attended a really interesting and inspiring presentation at the OR Society’s OR in the Third Sector meeting on 23rd February. My Mindmap from the Cranfield Trust speakers’ introductory presentation is below. We also heard from Debbie Featherstone of Crossroads Care and Jamie Neil of Cabrini Children’s Society. They led case study discussions looking at how OR could help address some of their challenges. It was pretty clear that the OR community has a lot to contribute to the Third Sector and it reinforced my personal commitment to provide pro bono support to charities.
