1. What do you most like about being on the Board?

Being on the board allows you to stay up to date on all the latest fundraising tools, techniques and campaigns. Best of all, it means you get to meet the people that are driving our sector forward. I love pulling together the programme by speaking to people with ideas about the future of fundraising, donors and charities. 

2. What do you bring to the Board?

I am one of two people that looks after the digital stream on the board. As I work for a digital design agency, I get to see what lots of different organisations are doing with digital as part of my day job. I hope that this perspective compliments the folks who work inside a single charity, that make up a lot of the board members. 

3. What are you looking forward to about this year’s Fundraising Convention?

We’re really pushing to try and make this year’s event the most diverse we’ve ever had. Not just in terms of people, but also the types of organisations and ways of thinking that we’re highlighting. Within the digital stream this means we’ve got a bunch of sessions that are quite different from what I’ve seen before.

I’m particularly excited about Michelle at the ACLU coming over from the USA and Dani Hughes, showing us what she learnt from a year working at a fitness start-up.
