To survive in a world of ever-increasing change, organisations must ensure they are equipped with the capabilities and the culture to innovate for the future.

As a sector, we have a moral imperative to be as effective as we can be. To exceed all expectations. To work harder and smarter than any other sector. Because people are entrusting billions of pounds to us to do good.

To be as good as we can means we need to constantly review and learn and change. Society never stands still, and neither should charities. But there needs to be a cultural shift in the way charities think so they begin to understand, embrace and then demand that their workforce is as innovative and creative as a Californian tech start-up looking for a pink unicorn.

In this seminar, we’ll explore:

  • What is innovation, why is it important and what is your role?
  • What drives, and what stifles a creative culture?
  • Case studies – innovation in practice
  • How to change the way you, your team and your board think
  • Finding innovation leaders and partners: who should we look to?
  • How can your brand strategy be innovative?
  • How to implement innovation without breaking the budget
  • Social investment as a new charity funding tool

Who is this for?

This seminar will suit anyone wishing to explore what innovation means and how it can help their charity. Particularly relevant to heads of departments or people driving innovation at their organisation. It will offer building blocks for innovative working which can be used whatever your seniority or department.
