  • Who is my brand? (and why does it matter)
  • Post-lockdowns… what is the future intersection for virtual and face-to-face?
  • What is Web 3.0? And do I need to engage with NFTs, Blockchain andCrypto?
  • What are the ethical implications and moral choices likely to arise in aWeb3 world?
  • What does research tell us about the future for engagement, community development and donor retention?
  • How have the rules of engagement changed – and how do I play?
