What is the leadership reality for the NfP sector?

GatenbySanderson invites you to join us to discuss the significant challenges the Not for Profit sector is currently facing and relate them to the leadership qualities needed to successfully navigate this complex environment.

We will share recent research into the behavioural strengths and risks of Not for Profit (NfP) sector leaders, when compared to our public sector benchmark, and also share examples of leadership development strategies being progressed by others in the sector to address these challenges.

  • Date: Tuesday 24 November, 10.30 – 12.00

The NfP sector is facing a challenging time; relentless scrutiny on leadership and culture, with damaging headlines impacting public trust, significant financial challenges while simultaneously responding to increasing need from the most vulnerable communities.
