Challenge your thinking

The IoF is partnering with Rogare to identify sessions that will challenge your thinking. In contrast to sessions that are aimed mainly at increasing or enlarging a delegate’s knowledge, critical thinking sessions aim to encourage delegates to think differently about the issues, challenges and problems they face in their day-to-day jobs, or in terms of sectoral policy.

These sessions are therefore not just giving delegates answers, but also giving them tools to find the answers themselves.The aim of this guide is to make it easier for you to plan a route through the programme that will help you fine tune the knowledge that you already have and make the most of your time at Fundraising Convention.
