NFWI are pleased to share access to view this recording which is offered by Birketts Law Firm and presented by Head of Charities, Liz Brownsell.

Conflicts of interests affect all types of charities and are very common. Where conflicts arise this does not necessarily mean that decisions cannot be taken or project pursued, but it is absolutely essential to identify and properly manage conflicts and to consider issues relating to personal benefits. In our experience, the legal principles are often misunderstood and this can result in problems within a charity that are difficult and expensive to resolve. In this webinar, Liz Brownsell, Partner and Head of Birketts’ Charities Team, explains the legal principles that apply to all charities in relation to personal benefits and conflicts of interests, using practical examples to provide you with the tools to effectively manage these issues within your own charity.

This is an access anytime video resource provided free of charge from Birketts Law Firm. Once your booking has completed, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to view this session which you can watch in your own time.
