Next Thursday SOFII and Open Fundraising are holding the second 'I wish I'd thought of that' event.
I was lucky enough to speak at the first one last year and it was a fantastic event. One of my favourite conferences/events I attended all year.
Tickets are still available (£25-£100) and I'd highly recommend going along if you can. There's a fabulous line up of speakers who will all be sharing a great fundraising idea. If you don't come away inspired and with a number of ideas you can copy, then I'd be amazed!
You can read my summary of last year's event or read on for a list of articles that have caught my eye recently.
