  • Charity Technology Breakfast Briefing: How we procure in the changing world of IT

In partnership with Civil Society we invite you to a breakfast briefing exploring the opportunities and challenges facing charity IT leaders. This interactive seminar will provide a unique forum for open debate and an opportunity to connect with your peers. This event will explore the processes charity organisations should undertake before making investments in technology and how charities can get the most out of their partnership with suppliers. Civil Society have worked together with the Charity IT Leaders group to identify a topic which will provide functionally relevant information to technology decision makers in the charity sector. Getting the right systems in place to make your charity run as effectively as possible can be a challenge.
