Good Deals is the UK’s leading social investment conference. Taking place on Wednesday 28 November and Thursday 29 November, the conference connects mainstream investors, institutional investors, foundations, advisors, policy makers, support networks and social entrepreneurs to be inspired, learn from each other and do business together.
There is a host of fantastic workshops taking place, including a discussion led by Martin Rich exploring the role pension funds can play in impact investing.
Ben Jupp is speaking at this event in London on October 17. The new trend for Payment by Results (PbR) commissioning has fast become a concern for charities across the country. As more and more public sector bodies look to use the PbR framework, charities need to understand both how their funding may be affected and the steps they need to take to maximise their chances of securing new contracts. This workshop introduces the fundamental principles of PbR and offers practical insights into how charities can manage this source of funding effectively and efficiently.
Toby Eccles will be speaking at this conference hosted by Environmental Finance Publications, and supported by Social Finance. He will be on a panel discussing “The global outlook for impact investing”.
With some experts predicting a ten-fold increase in impact investments to $500 billion by 2014 (1% of all managed assets), this conference will analyse and debate the most effective ways for investors to generate environmental, social and financial returns.
The Keynote Address will be given by Lord Fink, Chief Executive Officer, ISAM.
Jane Newman will be speaking at this conference in Edinburgh on September 12. Strains on budgets are combining with a consensus throughout Scotland that the way in which we provide services needs to change. This is leading to some radical approaches in provision across many local authorities. The third sector has to come up with new ways of promoting the interests the serve. We will hear from organisations who have done so successfully as well as experts from across the country as we explore the core issues surrounding the third sector in Scotland.
