“It can be a lonely place being a CEO, but the forum provides support and a knowledge sharing network for members and I, for one, am delighted to see CEOs openly sharing their expertise and concerns. Our recent discussions around the recession and collaborative working were both informative and inspiring. SECF is a great example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.
“As SECF grows I’m convinced we will be able to speak as one voice for charities in the region. That is a powerful incentive to be involved.”
D’Arcy Myers, CEO of The Rainbow Centre, founding member of the South East Charity Forum
“The South East Charity forum is all about CEOs coming together to assist each other and to share knowledge, experience and best practice with a view to developing stronger leadership and management in the region and the sector,”
“It also provides an opportunity for them to network with other charity heads, and support their peers at a local level.”
Margaret Craton, Partner & Head of Charities & Education at asb law
“We have been delighted by the interest the forum has generated amongst CEOs of charities in the South East. The first two meetings were well supported and the feedback has been positive. It is clear to us that there is demand across the region for such events. As the forum grows, so will the opportunities for CEOs to learn and develop.”
David Montgomery, Partner at Kingston Smith
