The FSI Skills Conference: Sharing the Essentials 2019
It’s back by popular demand!
The FSI’s annual Skills Conference is returning to London this March, providing small charity delegates the chance to access expert speakers on a variety of topics to build essential back-office skills.
With a market value of £295, FSI Members can get all this for just £25!
Throughout the day, you’ll attend four workshops to learn about essential back-office skills that you need to run your small charity. Topics will be based upon finance, marketing & communications, governance, management and charity policy.
Please click on the workshops below to find out what sessions are on offer, you are able to access four sessions on the day. When booking, we will ask you to choose your top six preferences, and we will seek to allocate at least three of these for you to attend.
““It is a day well spent away from the day to day activities where I could listen to others and share skills. Although a very full packed day, it meant I could actually ask questions and think about the charity I manage.” – The Hideaway Youth Project
