Welcome from the Chairs
Are you enabling your organisation to progress, finding new ways of doing things and responding to outside forces? If so you are an Agent of Change.
The 2020 Development Services conference will explore what it means to be part of a high performing team in the fast paced and agile world in which we now exist. By building trust through communication and collaboration, by championing continuous improvement, and by enabling decision making we can have a significant impact on the efficiency and effectiveness of Development and Alumni Relations teams within our organisations.
You will hear a wide-range of examples on how change – be it big or small, proactive or reactive – can impact the future of your organisation. The programme will cover all aspects of development services practice, including research and analytics, gift and finance administration, strategy and planning, and infrastructure. This conference is for everyone who believes in unlocking and supporting new ways of working in our organisations (even if you don’t work in Development Services).

The conference is divided into four tracks to help organise your personal schedule for the event, but we encourage you to explore sessions from all tracks.
