Event Date: 04 October 2016

Tuesday 4 October, 9.30am-1pm – BWMacfarlane, 6th Floor, Castle Chambers, 43 Castle Street, Liverpool, L2 9SH.

This free seminar is for BWMacfarlane charity clients and friends.

With so much going on in the charity sector, BWMacfarlane has invited an excellent line-up of speakers to provide updates and share their expert opinions on some of the key topical issues:

  • Charity Law Updates: Catherine Rustomji, Head of Charities & Social Enterprise, DWF LLP, will present on a range of issues including: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016 – commencement regulations for provisions coming into force in 2016/2017; New Charity Commission guidance on charities & litigation/taking legal action; Fundraising Regulator and new fundraising regulations; and the new power of social investment
  • Leadership and mental toughness: Andy Whitehead, Director and Owner of AMPW LTD, will discuss how the most successful leaders understand the important relationship between emotional intelligence and leadership and create a workforce that is confident and enthusiastic about their work, empowered to get the job done their way, and inspired to reach personal and organisational success. But how do you develop and maintain a mental toughness to cope with all the challenges that the leadership role can bring with it, especially in the voluntary sector?
  • Team building and employee engagement: following on from the above, Andy Whitehead will explain how good employee engagement is vital in enabling organisations to fulfil their missions. Using his extensive experience, he will talk about how to focus on doing the simple things that really count to help understand employee motivation and in turn to make employees feel valued and inspired
  • Finance matters and more: reflecting on the latest guidance and updates from the Charity Commission, HMRC and wider sources, this talk from BWMacfarlane Partners Peter Taaffe and Lesley Malkin will extract the pertinent points in an easy to understand and pragmatic manner. They will also focus on the latest developments in cloud accountancy software and how charities are embracing the many advantages including cost, functionality and security benefits that cloud software can bring

Complimentary breakfast rolls and drinks will be provided on arrival with a break for refreshments mid-morning. There will be a light buffet lunch at the end of the talks, where you are invited to stay and network.
