Commissioning | Connecting | Communicating – UK Human Services Event

By February 9, 2015


Date: Tuesday 24th February

Time: 2-5pm with networking drinks to follow

Venue: Salesforce Tower, 110 Bishopsgate, London EC2. Room 408 on the 27th Floor offering spectacular views of Londons skyline


Join, along with partner Purple Vision and several leading nonprofits as we look at how support and service-based organizations are developing innovative ways to power their missions in an evolving and dynamic marketplace.

For service-based nonprofits, the challenge to grow and improve service is compounded by decreasing budgets, increased competition for resources, and a legacy of overlapping and outdated technology systems.

With an understanding that today’s teams are multifunctional, dynamic and juggle more demands and requirements, we will explore:

  • How to move forward and support growth and development, while also improving service and quality?
  • How to manage multiple-stakeholder relationships accurately and with integrity?
  • How to measure the outcomes and impacts of your programmes?

At this special event focused on Human Service organisations, we will hear how leading charities are addressing the challenges to manage their programs and outcomes more effectively, gain visibility into their performance and impact, and create a unified view of their constituents – from commissioning relationships and support networks, to beneficiaries, volunteers, donors and beyond.

Purple Vision has been supporting non profits with their technology, database and CRM needs for more than ten years. Their experience spans full integrations of new systems, through to working with existing systems and infrastructure (and every stage in between).  

They will share their unique insight into the options and approaches available to organisations of all shapes and sizes, and will share the story of Dyslexia Action.  This well-known organisation has been delivering services using disparate systems and technology for a while, but have a medium-term approach to moving forward.  Their case study will provide useful food for thought for many organisations facing the same opportunities and challenges.
