Big Advice Day

Expert advice is not always easy to come by when resources are stretched and this can be a particular problem for small charities. Big Advice Day will take place on 20th June 2017, involving a national London event and various regional events across the country where small charities can access expert 1:1 advice on a variety of topics.

National Big Advice Day

The FSI will be hosting its annual Big Advice Day in Central London on the 20th June 2017. We have an array of brilliant experts signing up to share their experience and expertise in a range of different areas, including HR, legal, marketing, business planning and strategy, finance, leadership and more. Just tell us the specific challenge you are facing and we will match you with a skilled advisor who can provide advice and recommendations.

We will have a panel of Fundraising Experts ready to answer your queries on anything from Major Donor programmes, Capital Appeals, Legacies, Individual Giving, Corporate partnerships, Digital fundraising and more.

One-to-one advice appointments will be available either face-to-face at our Advice Hub in central London, or via Skype/over the phone. Those attending the Advice Hub will also benefit from short informative workshops on a range of topics.

Last year over 300 hours of free advice were provided and we’re hoping to increase the total even further this year, so sign up for your session today.
