In a period of austerity that is now being predicted to last until 2020, Funds need to make their resources work hard to promote their mission. This conference brought together some key thinking about how to build stronger relationships with your stakeholders, getting the best out of your investments, how philanthropy may be useful in generating new funding and how to use social media to reach out to potential supporters and beneficiaries. This was an event to get you thinking with new ideas and creative solutions.
