The atmosphere at the Conference is vibrant, with challenging speakers and a highly engaged audience. While the sessions range from single issue/single speaker (and you can’t get better than Prof. Pat McGorry speaking about his philanthropy-funded work in mental health), to panel sessions across a range of timely issues - there is a coherence to the event, with several themes emerging: need for long term commitments to achieve generational change around social issues; the importance of foundations and donors allocating part of their grant portfolio to risk taking; the unparalled need for foundations and philanthropists to work together and collaborate. Much food for thought.
