Fundraising Live 2017
Following a year of significant disruption across the charity sector, charities of all types and sizes are reinventing the way they communicate with supporters and seeking to build more meaningful and sustainable relationships. This year’s Fundraising Live conference was an important event for UK fundraisers, bringing together charities and suppliers to learn, share and network and this years event was sold out.
The conference covered a wide range of topics helping charities with their fundraising tactics through plenary sessions, keynote addresses, networking sessions and workshops. Speakers from a range of charities such as Cancer Research UK, World Vision, Anthony Nolan and British Red Cross spoke on relevant and engaging topics and it was great to both film and exhibit at the event.
We filmed the keynote speeches; in the opening speech Anthony Newman, Cancer Research UK’s director of brand, marketing and communications spoke on principles for strategic fundraising growth and the closing plenary was by Mike Adamson from British Red Cross on Fundraising Fit for the Future.
We’ve produced a short video to promote this year’s event and to encourage more charities to attend and suppliers to exhibit at next year’s event.
It was a busy day exhibiting and filming but it was interesting to network with so many charities and to see what an invaluable resource the event is for UK fundraisers. Civil Society Media run the conference, it was great to hear their positive testimonial of working with us. Jenni O'Donovan, Head of Events at Civil Society Media said:
“Purple Flame worked hard to ensure their footage conveys the vibrancy of Fundraising Live, taking into account all the different elements of the event from workshops to networking, and also capturing many of the different voices present on the day. We hope the promotional video they produced for us will provide a useful tool enabling us to communicate the benefits of involvement to a wider network of people, through bringing the event to life. Phil and Kate were a pleasure to work with.”
