  • (1888PressRelease) August 10, 2010 - As a sign of how embedded the not-for-profit sector has become in broader society, forum3 has introduced a new series of seminars at its 10th annual career event at the end of September. The topics include sustainable policies, CEO thinking, fundraising, social networking strategies, business outsourcing, government work and managing budget cuts.

    Aimed at professionals in the industry and not only people who are seeking jobs in the charity sector, forum3 has launched the seminars to meet demands for broader and deeper discussion around issues affecting not-for-profit, government and private sectors.

    Deborah Hockham, director of forum3 commented: "It's clear that the not-for profit sector has developed significantly over the past few years and it will continue to become more strategic and sophisticated. The Government's Big Society vision is another sign of the strategic place charities will take to solve critical socio-political issues affecting communities.

    "At our events we increasingly see attendees from Government and private sectors seeking advice from charity organisations and vice versa. All organisations, regardless of sector, are directly impacted by issues such as the environment, social media, talent management and budget cuts. We see it as a natural step to open up a broader forum for discussions and networking opportunities to address these issues at a critical time in society."

    Career coach and writer, John Lees, who will open the seminar series as the keynote speaker said he recommends forum3 to all his contacts, "It's a great way to match your career aspirations against opportunities in not-for-profit work. The event offers information, career and job search advice, insightful seminars and - most importantly - a wealth of networking opportunities. Where else do you get a chance to 'try on' different roles to see how well they will fit?"

    The seminars will run 24-25th September during the forum3 career fair at The Business Design Centre in Islington.
