Annual charity and social enterprise conference at Anglia Ruskin’s Chelmsford campus
Stumped by “social investment” or confused by “crowdfunding”? Quid Pro Quo, the third sector finance conference organised by Anglia Ruskin University and Social Enterprise East of England, will provide all the answers on Friday, 20 September.
The conference, taking place at Anglia Ruskin’s Chelmsford campus, will focus on finance and funding for charities, social enterprises and voluntary organisations, and will provide an invaluable learning and networking opportunity for third sector practitioners from across the region.
Speakers at the event will include Nick O’Donohoe (Big Society Capital), Craig Dearden-Phillips MBE (MD and Founder of Stepping Out), Karl Wilding (Director of Public Policy at the National Council for Voluntary Organisations) and social investment analyst Helen Heap.
There will also be a range of workshops, including sessions focusing on sales, managing finance, social media marketing, alternative finance (crowdfunding and community shares), social investment, resource efficiency and third sector leadership.
