IoF Scotland - Adopting a Leadership culture - Scottish Heads' & Directors' SIG
Date: Wednesday 27th Feb 2019
Time: 10:30 -12:30
Venue: Albert Halls
Guest speaker Bruce Tait will kick start this session and discuss millennials, meta-skills and the multi-generational workforce.
Bruce Tait was an award-winning Director of Fundraising who now runs Scotland’s biggest charity fundraising consultancy and a recruitment agency that specialises in finding fundraisers for Scottish charities. This unique perspective allows Bruce to truly understand how charities can successfully recruit and manage fundraisers in the current environment, where up to 5 generations can be part of the same fundraising team. Let him buy you breakfast and tell you about how you can create high-performing fundraising teams by understanding how to get the best out of each generation – especially the much maligned Millennials!
Breakfast with Bruce will be followed by a short AGM of the IoF Scottish Heads and Directors' Special Interest Group and then the main session will begin.
By developing the right leadership culture, can organisations improve results, achieve their goals and overcome difficulties that can otherwise hinder success?
Lisa Duthie, Leader, The Cornerstone Foundation & Linda Todd, CEO Leprosy Mission, will share the highs and lows of their organisational and personal journeys, on introducing a leadership model within their charities. They will discuss models and practices that they have introduced within their organisations.
The audience are invited to take part in the discussion and share their experiences on whether adopting an empowerment approach will result in the development of high performing fundraising teams; or does the case for a top down task focussed approach yield better income generation? Which approach provides better results for staff retention, motivation and team development?
