The details

What is live streaming?

Live streaming means you can watch the key workshops and speakers live. It’s very easy, you can purchase it here and get access to the workshop room as if you were there. And if you can’t make it at the time, don’t worry, you can watch it later, as you’ll have the sessions to watch on-demand for one month after the event.

  • 60 minute seminar delivered by sector experts

Inspirational Talks

Bernie Hollywood, OBE

Day one Inspirational Talk at 11:30 – Let’s collaborate…connecting charities with businesses

More charities are looking to corporate partners to help diversify their funding.

However, businesses have much more to offer than just financial input – including time, skills and commitment of employees. We’ll explore 6 ways to help make that connection: Think local and informal, get talking, find a good match, make use of your networks, sell yourself and weigh it up.

Julie Bentley, CEO, Girlguiding

Day two closing Inspirational Talk at 16:30 – Women and Leadership

Julie Bentley will consider how well the UK is doing to support women in leadership roles. She will share some personal reflections and tips and will talk about the work Girlguiding does to empower the next generation of female leaders.

See what people had to say about our Fundraising Fair live stream

An excellent affordable way to access a quality event. travel costs etc. often make it difficult for small orgs like ourselves to attend. – Jennifer Kirkham, Chapter Arts Centre


This is a great innovation and meant I could watch sessions relevant to me without taking a long time out of the office. As soon as it finished I could continue with my work, fired up with the new knowledge I had gained. – Alisa Lakeman-Ford, St Wilfrid’s Hospice


The live stream worked very well and was good valuable. I had missed any advertising about the fundraising fair until the day before, so the option of attending virtually was really helpful, as I could join last minute without booking time out of work. – Paul Hutchings, John Pounds Centre
