When I received a call from the IoF West Midlands Committee sharing the news that my bursary application for Fundraising Convention had been successful, I was more than a little elated. It’s been two years since I've attended Convention and with the sector continually changing, and many personal and professional growth opportunities in my role at The Haven Wolverhampton during this time too, I was eager to get down to London and learn.

Plenaries inspire us to do better

Kylie Kitchen | 12 July 2018

Three people made more than 3,000 of us stop to look at ourselves very differently last week. Between them, the plenary speakers at Fundraising Convention compelled us to consider our creativity, our cultural understanding and our mission for diversity.

Why we need to give supporters more control over their payments

Guest Bloggers | 2 July 2018

Recent years have seen a raft of new contactless and digital payment technology evolve to become fast, easy and convenient to suit today’s increasingly time-poor consumer. Adoption continues to rise and it’s clear that people are seeking out payment methods that work with their busy lives and variable finances, and this is just as true for charity supporters.

Bullet journaling for personal productivity

Bullet journaling for personal productivity

Guest Bloggers | 26 June 2018

I started my bullet journaling obsession about a year ago when I was relatively fresh into freelancing and was on a personal development mission. One of the many podcasts I was listening to at the time caught my attention with a session on bullet journaling.
