Principal Connections sponsor Charities Institute Ireland’s Annual Conference 2017
Principal Connections, Ireland’s leading Specialists in Education, Not-For-Profit and Public Sector Senior Executive Search and Interim Recruitment were proud to sponsor Charities Institute Ireland’s Annual Conference held at the Royal College of Physicians on Kildare Street, Dublin 2 on the 26th of October 2017.
Part of the Catalyst for Change Conference series, the all-day event explored what is required to make the non-profit sector more relevant and resilient in the face of growing uncertainty and complexity.
Lucinda Horwell, Associate Director at Principal Connections Executive Search & Leadership Advisory, described the event as “Very thought provoking and insightful. It’s clear the NFP Sector has a lot of work to do in changing the public perception and overall distrust of charities in Ireland. Leadership, sound strategic planning and courage will no doubt be vital for future growth and sustainability”.
Charities 2037, the largest report on the sector of its kind, commissioned by Charities Institute Ireland (Cii), and conducted by Amárach Research, was launched by Minister of State for Community Development, Seán Kyne T.D. Supported by The Ireland Funds. Charities 2037 gathered information from a large sample size and a diverse demographic: 1000 members of the public, 364 charity staff members and 101 charity volunteers to establish their perceptions of charities and their service provision today – and what they hope for the future.
Additionally, the focus of the conference also included: panel discussions, case studies, training sessions and masterclasses on topics that remain highly relevant for the charity sector in Ireland, such as GDPR, Brexit, critical communications, governance, cyber security and financial planning.
