Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to postpone this webinar. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience and short notice. 

We will be rescheduling the session as a matter of priority and will share the link to re-register for the webinar as soon as possible.

We invite you to join our second webinar in our philanthropy series. The theme is ‘How to manage risk in philanthropy’ and is taking place on 21st September at 11.00am.

We are delighted that Lucy Macnamara of Do Good. Well. will join us to speak alongside our Head of Philanthropy, Catherine de Maid.

Bringing their experience and guidance together, Catherine will explore legal and compliance risks including governance and managing conflicts of interest or loyalty, and Lucy will consider reputational risks. 

Our second webinar builds upon the publication of our philanthropy guide earlier this year, "Turning good into great: Insights into effective philanthropy”. It also builds on our first webinar How to establish a philanthropy strategy which explored the key issues philanthropists ought to consider to make their giving as successful as possible.
