  • Kathryn Holloway
  • Owen Watkins

As in previous years, three talented ‘up-and-coming’ fundraisers will also present, having benefited from mentoring and support from more experienced fundraisers and presenters.

I wanted to fall in love with fundraising again - I did. (Postcard comment)

IWITOT can be inspiring…

Ken Burnett who, with the help of Open’s co-Founders James Briggs and Tim Longfoot, created the event seven years ago said: “This weird word we’ve created, IWITOT… It’s of course an acronym for I Wish I’d Thought of That. But it’s come to mean fast-paced, sparkly, concise creative lessons from fresh speakers each given just seven minutes to inspire. It means the best young talent, live on stage, airing and sharing what they believe is just great. It means electric, contagious passion and tons of learning from and for fundraisers of all sorts, in great causes large and small. Be there!”

 

 

All proceeds from ticket sales are donated to SOFII, the online library of fundraising case studies.
