What is innovation and why is it important for the voluntary sector? How can charities innovate and embed an innovation culture?

Recent political and economic events have resulted in a seismic shift in our outlook for the sector and these changes will have a significant impact on how charities operate. 

In an unpredictable world, one thing is for certain: charities will need to adapt, and consider how they can continue to deliver their purpose, despite the barriers they may face. 

Innovating for success is a one-day conference focusing on how charities can develop an innovation mindset, and make the most of opportunities to realise their full potential and deliver even better impact. 

Who should attend?

Senior charity trustees and staff, especially those with responsibility for strategic and financial leadership and management.

An introduction to innovation within charities

Why innovate?

Charities are under intense scrutiny – how they are governed, how they raise and spend their money and how they achieve their charitable purposes.  Leaders are expected to account for every penny and deliver and ensure they operate efficiently, but could they be delivering even better impact by rethinking the way they operate?

Kate Sutton, Inclusive Economy Lead, Nesta

Embedding innovation in your organisational culture

When we think about innovation, brands such as Apple, Google and Dyson come to mind. Creating an environment where innovation thrives seems at odds with the pressures charities face and questions around efficiency, risk and lack of funds can be barriers. How can charities overcome these challenges and empower their staff to achieve better outcomes by doing things differently?

Director Europe, Business, Industrial and Scientific, Amazon
