Charity Turnarounds - changing ahead of the curve
Wed 19 July 2017 at 6 for 6.30pm
- Julie Bentley, Chief Executive of Girlguiding
- Caroline Copeman, Consultant, Centre for Charity Effectiveness, Cass Business School, City, University of London
Charity turnarounds are usually attempted after things have gone too far, the organisation is in dire straits and the cure can be terminal. How do you judge when and how to persuade a charity that it must change before it realises it needs to, i.e. “ahead of the curve” to use a concept promoted by Charles Handy? Julie Bentley has led a change programme at Girlguiding and she will explain how, whilst Caroline Copeman will talk more generally about how organisations might think differently about reinvention and getting ahead of the curve.
