The team at JDRF were our hosts for the March Roundtables.
Overseas treks, mass participation events, staffing issues and strategy were all discussed before the arrival of emails from the London Marathon regarding the Charity of the Year partnership pitches meant a few teams rushed off to prepare!
Many thanks to Becky and the team for their meeting rooms.
Our February Meeting was held at the JustGiving offices in Southwark.
Guests were welcomed by the founder and MD, Anne-Marie Huby, before Keith Williams, General Manager, gave a presentation on events insights they had gleamed from their data over the previous twelve months. Next up, Lucy Gower spoke on innovation in the sector and charmed the crowd with free gifts in reward for bravery.
Groups then took a tour of the offices - meeting each team at JustGiving and discussing what they do and the latest projects they are working on.
We've had some great feedback on this meeting, thanks to those of you who joined us and our speakers on the day.
Our Christmas Roundtable meetings were held at Sense in Angel. Many thanks to Sarah Bowes for hosting.
The eclectic agenda moved from Santa runs to HMRC then on to Real Buzz and JustGiving. We discussed the rise in virtual events and compared post-event comms.
None of this proved helpful at the local pub where Team EMF fared terribly in their quiz, if only they had included a console deadline round...
The first Roundtable meetings were hosted at Sue Ryder where topics ranged from data consents and HMRC to team structures and workloads. But it wasn't all fun, we also got through the serious matter of third party agreements, portfolios and marketing packages too.
As is becoming traddition, the conversation moved on to the pub opposite afterwards. Many thanks to Sue Ryder for hosting.
The last of the Rebels.
Our final meeting as the Rebel Fundraisers was held at the very flash Breast Cancer Care offices. We saw record numbers on the day, filling the boardroom in Southwark with more than thirty Event Managers.
Top of the agenda was RideLondon followed by top tips on Overseas and UK tour operators. There was mutual appreciation for the virtual events offered by attendees and suggestions for On The Day Registration processes. Data Consents came up again and 2017 portfolios were discussed.
The meeting moved on to the pub opposite with a chat about Ironman events, ironically over a few pints.
Many thanks to Sarah Osborne for hosting, great biscuits.
