Attend event

In the recent Charity Digital Skills Report 2021, 52% of respondents said that they would like their leadership team to offer a clear digital vision. But getting buy-in from senior leadership and trustees for your digital vision can be tricky. In this session, we’ll hear how charities are doing this well, and we’ll share tips on how you can get buy-in from the top in your own organisation. And there will be time for some much needed peer-to-peer sharing too!
