The Rathbones Charity Symposium 2016 has been announced

Rathbones is to host its Charity Symposium on Thursday, 28 April 2016 at the newly refurbished IET London: Savoy Place.  At what is now a well-established event in the not-for-profit calendar, Rathbones’ spokespeople will be joined by Lord Coe, President of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), as the keynote speaker. Seb is one of the greatest athletes of our time, setting an incredible 12 world records over four distances and achieving four gold medals and three silver in the Olympics and European Championships.
 
The Charity Symposium, aimed at charity trustees and their advisers, takes ‘Legacy: securing the future’ as its central theme. Taking place in the same year that Rio de Janeiro is the host city for the 2016 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games, and four years after the unforgettable London 2012 Games, the Symposium will take inspiration from the lasting impact these important events have on local communities, as well as the economic benefits.

Andy Pitt, head of charities – London at Rathbones said, “Legacy is not just about giving to charities, but also represents the very essence of what charities aim to achieve in pursuit of their mission. Through their ongoing good works and positive impact on society, charities create social legacies. At the Symposium we invite our guests to explore what a legacy is and how they can help secure the future of charity.

“The reception that the Charity Symposium receives reflects the quality of the debate and thoughtful examination of key issues facing charity trustees and their advisers.  We believe it is an essential part of our commitment to provide a complete and rounded service. As a forum for open discussion, we find it an invaluable tool for addressing some of the more pressing needs of our clients.”
