You should attend this working session if you have a role in managing the reputation of a charity when things go wrong.

Thursday, January 24th 2019 -Complimentary Workshop in Central London

This session will give you three valuable tools:

  • Clarity on the processes you need to have in place to respond appropriately to breach of data protection rules and notify the Information Commissioner’s Office in compliance with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
  • The ability to identify the key governance policies that should be in place to reduce the risk of a crisis, in particular, submitting a Serious Incident Report to the Charity Commission and what we can learn from recent high profile crises in the sector
  • Awareness of the tactical and strategic approaches needed to manage media and stakeholder relations when a crisis hits. Equipping you to respond more effectively when you need to.

The event is designed for trustees and charity management teams, to help them identify the risks to reputation and revenue that they are running and how to manage the consequences when an issue arises.
