IDPE Live streams

This stream will explore how we can continue to support alumni whilst offering support, shift existing engagement activities online and continue to strengthen relationships with our community.     ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​With everyone social distancing, it is more important than ever to explore new ways of communicating. This stream will discuss how best to connect with your community in a virtual world.


​​​​​​​To fundraise or not to fundraise? When the world is in crisis, it can be difficult to know whether to make ‘an ask’. This stream will consider how to adapt your fundraising strategy to a post-COVID world, and what your priorities should be moving forwards.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​With continued uncertainty, it is crucial to reflect on our own wellbeing and look after ourselves. IDPE Live will explore the personal skills needed to adapt to change and a new way of working.


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This stream will consider how you can demonstrate the value of development beyond income raised, and explore the importance of reviewing your strategic direction, benchmarking performance and managing expectations in the future.
