Event speaking

Are you looking to share a fundraising campaign, or debate something that has or hasn't worked? We are often looking for those in the sector and outside to feature at our events. If you have an interesting topic, and would like to know how this can fit with the IoF conference programme, please send your enquiry to Hannah Hockin, Event Programme Manager:
