Ambitious Partnerships Conference
Back by popular demand, Jonathan Andrews, will take you on the journey from remarkable partnerships between private sector and the charity/community sector to Ambitious Partnerships.

We know that partnerships between business and charities have the potential to make a huge impact. However sometimes these partnerships break down or deliver disappointing results, due to challenges including culture and communication.

At this conference we will explore how we can improve the way that businesses and charities partners together, so that these partnerships deliver more ambitious results for society and both partners
