  • The Platform – how to utilise Leaders, People, Processes and Technology.
  • Sharing some of the lessons we have learnt from assisting our fundraising clients such as; relationship-building; how you would track such relationships and contacts.
  • Conducting the right research to decide “winnable bids” and “unwinnable bids”.


“You can have the most highly skilled and motivated people, but if you put them in a lousy process, the process will win every time”. Ian Seath, Improvement Skills Consulting.

  • Show you how you can engage your people to improve your processes.
  • Explain why you need to understand today’s processes, before you think about automating them.
  • How much change and improvement do you need and can you cope with?  We’ll describe how designing options for tomorrow’s processes can help you determine what’s likely to work best in your organisation and culture.

There will be a presentation from Saleforce Foundation who will showcase how non-profit organisations effectively utilise the Salesforce donated and discounted licenses.
