Our thought-provoking international development events help professionals tackle the most pressing challenges facing their organisations and civil society.

Our events are your chance to interrogate the latest trends in the sector and get new ideas to drive positive change. We bring together influential thinkers, NGOs, donors and policy-makers for lively debates and networking. 

Our events are now online

We’re supporting NGOs to adapt their operations and keep their organisations safe through the Covid-19 pandemic. We’re responding to our members’ needs by mobilising the sector and providing the latest insights for enduring this crisis. 

We’re holding webinars on a range of Covid-19 topics, including medical advice and health, business continuity, mental wellbeing, travel and foreign exchange.
