PiF Voluntary Sector event - Tuesday 21 January 2014 - London

On Tuesday 21 January 2014 we held an event for PiF members and non-members working in the Voluntary Sector, kindly hosted by Macmillan Cancer Support at their London office.  The event was free to attend.  We were delighted that the event was fully booked, which enabled a great range of contributions and discussions to the topics of the day.

We are grateful to our speakers who provided stimulating presentations, and who generously shared their experiences and insights.  Attendees also enjoyed a speed networking session which enabled them to meet their peers and exchange business cards.  You can view the agenda for the day and the presentations from the event below.  Notes from the day will be available soon.
