Here Comes the Summer School!

Rated 8.8/10 by last year's delegates!

After a wildly successful debut event last year, the Ask Direct Fundraising Summer School is back.

Widely regarded as one of the best fundraising conferences of 2016, this year’s Fundraising Summer School will have more sessions, more speakers and more time to learn, debate, discuss, argue and mingle with some of the best brains in fundraising from across the world.

So if you want to be at the forefront of fundraising thinking, if you want to learn the latest ways to inspire and delight your donors and if you want the chance to learn from the leading lights of global fundraising, then Dublin is the place to be in August.

This is small, intimate conference. Places are strictly limited, so unless you want to be disappointed, book now!

Trinity College Dublin - 24th & 25th August 2017

What is Talking Point of Business?

Talking Point of Business is an event for business owners & employees. It is a day event that covers a range of topics from the top industry specialists based in the North East. Everything you hear on the day is delivered in a way that is actionable and easily implemented to help you grow and achieve massive success.

The topic covered in our event is Content Marketing, a key recipe for success in any business.

Networking also plays a part in the day, but not the usual type of networking. We have come up with techniques outside of the norm for a relaxed atmosphere, but strategies that form real relationships with people. There is a huge range of businesses in the room that will enable you to walk away with exceptional connections.

This is a day filled with the most amazing content, delivered in a fun & relaxed way.

Serious business content with a lively twist...
