The story of NPC Ignites 2018

On 10 October 2018 leaders from the sector and beyond gathered at Friends House in London for our annual conference NPC Ignites.

Over 200 people from the sector and beyond gathered to listen to innovative sector leaders discuss key issues. It offered a rare opportunity to take a step back from the day-to-day. We had 30+ speakers and the line-up included: Lisa Harker, CEO of The Art Room; Matt Hyde, CEO of The Scouts; Danielle Walker Palmour, CEO of the Friends Provident Foundation; Geoff Mulgan, CEO of Nesta and our own Dan Corry, NPC’s CEO.

The conference was sponsored by CoopSys, an accredited and leading supplier of IT services to the charity sector, with over 20 years experience and hundreds of successful projects.

And our media partner was Pioneers Post who delivers the news and sets the agenda for the new wave of responsible business leaders and social entrepreneurs.

What attendees said about the conference:

Well worth coming down from Manchester for it. A really excellent event once again.

Very good speakers and a good mix of views/backgrounds.

I thoroughly enjoyed the conference – thought-provoking keynote speakers, interesting discussions in the break-out groups and some great conversations with some of the delegates. 

Excellent – thought provoking, collaborative feel to the sessions.

Whole conference was superb…My first NPC conference and will definitely recommend!
