Our annual charity conference considered the issues and challenges faced by charities today.
We were delighted to welcome Rod Schwartz, CEO and Founder of ClearlySo who discussed how charities can turn to the private sector to secure impact investment and Jayne Adams, Charities Partner at McCarthy Denning who talked about the legal and governance issues raised by COVID-19 and what to do next. There were also some familiar faces from S&W, Brendan Weekes provided advice on how charities can spot and respond to fraud and Lucy Ward and Aimee Roche explained how stewardship and engagement is an essential part of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).
