Day 2 at the Fundraising Convention was once again for me all about getting out of my bubble and trying to see people I hadn't seen recently if at all, and who (gasp!) I might not even know from Twitter. How did I get on? Dear blog-reader, please continue to find out.
First up, featured extensively in the twitter thread below, was a real hobby horse of mine: a good panel debating how to attract and retain great fundraising staff. It was a balanced, clear-sighted discussion, with a strong focus on understanding why fundraisers leave their organisations, and how we can support them and develop them so they might stay.
First session for me at day 2 of #IoFFC is one on attracting and retaining the best fundraising talent, with @sonja_d30 Terence Lovell, Kane Moore, Imogen Topliss, and Matthew Ross. pic.twitter.com/z1QNLvokN6— Richard Sved (@richardsved) July 2, 2019
