City slicker joins institute conference

City superwoman Nicola Horlick is part of the line-up of motivational speakers at the Institute of Fundraising's 2008 National Convention. Jockey Bob Champion and Duncan Goose, the founder of Global Ethics, have also been announced as plenary session speakers.

The 19th annual convention will take place from 7 to 9 July at the Hilton London Metropole. It is aimed at fundraisers of all levels who work for charities and health, education and faith organisations across the UK.

This year, for the first time, the convention will include a closing plenary session. Alan Clayton, managing director of fundraising consultancy Cascade, will run the session, which is designed to inspire attendees to make things happen once they return to the office.

The conference includes more than 130 workshops divided into 10 specialist tracks for beginner, experienced and senior fundraisers.

Senior fundraisers will also be able to attend specialist management training in partnership with Henley Management College.

“There’s a great deal for delegates to gain from each other at convention, and the networking opportunities at the event are second to none,” said Kirsty Thomson, head of events at the institute. “Fundraisers have the opportunity to debate with peers on fundraising trends and broader issues affecting charities.”
