Small charities communications conference


12 July 2017

Smaller charities face different communications challenges: how do you make the most of minimum resources?

How can you keep up with developments and trends across different communications disciplines when you cover them all? Who do you turn to for input and feedback when you’re the only comms specialist in your organisation? And how do you make time for strategy when you may be the only one around to deal with the day-to-day?

Our small charities communications conference gave delegates the chance to develop strategic and practical skills, access to top-class, tailored advice, and the opportunity to connect and exchange with peers facing the same challenges.
