Tom Dixon

Head of Fundraising

Roald Dahl's Children's Charity

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

The chance to shape convention and ensure it is the best for fundraisers no matter what level or size of organisation they are in. Also working with a range of passionate fundraisers who all want the best for the sector. 

2. What do you bring to the Board?

I’m passionate about improving fundraisers and getting them to think about their learning and development. When I look at content and speakers I do it through that lens, ie what will the delegates get out of the sessions for their own personal development which in turn impacts their organisations? 

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

The focus on leadership is really important. As fundraising changes and evolves, the IoF has such an important part to play in leading the way and getting people to think differently. Diversity is a key part of that too and it’s great to see this theme progressing across the programme as well.
