Charity finance event in Manchester - CFG Northern Conference 2019

Building greatness from challenging times

Did you miss Charity Finance Group’s Midlands Conference in February?

Then come along to our next biggest regional conference in June, the CFG Northern Conference which returns to Manchester.

With Brexit a feature of uncertainty in the landscape, it’s crucial for financial managers in charities and non-profits to possess the latest knowledge to maintain a robust role and keep growing and developing strategies at a challenging time for the sector.

CFG’s Northern Conference 2019 is the opportunity to find out the latest charity finance and sector news, and the regulatory and technical updates which you need to know. It also provides the space to take a step back and develop room for fresh thinking, as our speakers share best practice and ideas in strategy sessions.

The day is also a great chance for you to connect with your colleagues in the sector and share issues, as well as have your burning questions answered by the speakers. There will also be an exhibition running throughout the day so you can discuss your charity’s key issues with specialists.

Here’s a look at what we have lined up for the day so far –

  • Building greatness from challenging times – Ricky Munday, Founder, Inspire Alpine
  • 25 years of regulated charity accounting in the UK – Gareth Morgan, Senior Partner, Kubernesis
  • An essential update on charity finance – Roberta Fusco, Director of Policy and Engagement, Charity Finance Group
  • Cybersecurity – Mitigate against risk – Ryan Parker, Charity Account Manager, D E Ford
  • Full cost recovery – New approaches to take – Marcus Lees-Millais, Cass Business School
  • Influencing and negotiation skills workshop – Stella Smith, CEO, Stella Smith & Associates

And we have much more in store, including the latest developments on tax and VAT; understanding your income and funding base; how to measure fundraising success in your charity; how to build public trust through your reporting, and digital on a budget – maximising digital in your charity to work for your beneficiaries.

Who should come along?

This event is open to members and non-members and will have valuable takeaways for those responsible for financial management in your charity, including financial managers, finance directors, CEOs and treasurers. CFG members also receive early bird discount – available for a limited time.
