Large scale organisations in the not-for-profit sector face challenges such as changing attitudes to fundraising, public trust concerns and the impact of changes in the retail sector.  Leaders in the not-for-profit sector need to:

  • Continually adapt and find new ways of overcoming challenges
  • Increase the speed of execution to cope with demands
  • Work collaboratively across the organisation
  • Allow teams to engage both with the charitable purpose and the commercial drivers
  • Find creative ways of attracting and retaining talent

We have considerable experience of helping senior leaders in this sector develop expertise and skills to address these challenges.
