Institute of Fundraising Chair, Amanda Bringans is the closing plenary speaker for Monday 23rd September. Amanda will tell the story of fundraising, from the scrutiny of 2015/16 through GDPR to confronting some of the key challenges and opportunities for the fundraising community through better supporter engagement, tackling sexual harassment, embracing equality, diversity and inclusion and moving towards Chartered status.
