Building Financial Sustainability and Re-imagining Organisations

Start date: November 13, 2020 9:00am

Moore Kingston Smith in association with CASS Business School has created an integrated programme of half-day workshops to help charity professionals and trustees develop strategies to evolve and/or reframe their organisations, in light of changes bought about through Coronavirus.
