Engaging Experience offers a wide range of strategic skills, mentoring, or non-executive governance support to charities. Originally set up by The Bulldog Trust, the network has successfully connected over a thousand charitable projects with specific pro-bono expertise to date.
Participants currently include hedge funders, bankers, lawyers, top civil servants, entrepreneurs, technology and media leaders, and other industry experts. Engaging Experience’s popularity has helped hundreds of people realise that using skills for charity is personally and professionally rewarding and can easily be achieved alongside a full-time career.
Participants are invited to a number of events at Two Temple Place, giving them the opportunity to meet charities, social enterprises and each other face-to-face. In addition regular emails are circulated with opportunities to connect with specific charities and projects. Events are frequently co-hosted with other organisations including New Philanthropy Capital, Big Society Capital, and the Small Charities Coalition.
All business professionals are invited to join and participation is free. There is also no charge for charities to use the service. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
