SROI and Other Impact Measurement techniques: Practical advice to improve your impact reporting and fundraising
Kingston Smith and the SROI (Social Return On Investment) Network (soon to be Social Value UK) are joining forces to launch a new information seminar to help you look at ways to articulate and demonstrate your organisation’s impact. This is a new and exciting approach to demystifying the concepts around measuring impact, the principles behind accounting for social value and some dos and don’ts we have picked up from our experience of SROI. This is a unique opportunity to gain insight both into the concepts and an inside track on how impact reporting can work for you – all in a relaxed atmosphere which will give you time to formulate questions and have them answered.
The seminar is aimed at those who are considering impact reporting, are perhaps partway through an analysis, are interested in how to best approach assurance and verification issues for a report or just those who want to know some useful advice for achieving a credible impact report. The session will also provide tips for sharpening your fund-raising approaches through fully articulating and accounting for the value of your work.
We aim to combine an accounting for social value information session with a networking and hospitality experience and are expecting that our limited capacity will quickly go. Please book your place as soon as possible!Speakers:

James Newell is the Director of Kingston Smith Fundraising and Management Consultancy Business and primarily works with charities looking to strengthen their fundraising and enhance resilience. He has significant major donor and capital appeal fundraising experience and develops and utilises tool kits for charities to articulate their impact to solicit income.The cost of the session to be held in London on 28th January will be £25 per person which will include refreshments during the session and networking drinks at the conclusion. It will commence at 3pm and end at around 7pm but there will be time afterwards for those who want to chat further.
Come along, get a hold of some key concepts in impact reporting and enjoy the networking opportunity and hospitality.
