The Changing Landscape of Fundraising with Erin Barrett, Managing Partner of Octopus Strategies in London


The fundraising landscape is changing at an alarming rate. Channels are multiplying, but returns are diminishing. Once reliable strategies and media no longer deliver.

From the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association and Save the Children, to Sentebale, a charity founded by HRH Prince Harry, Erin Barrett has worked on some of the biggest brands in the market. She focuses on the development of multi-million dollar marketing and fundraising plans designed to recruit and retain donors.

Join Erin as she talks about the award-winning 2008 campaign for the UK’s National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Learn how this remarkable organization is navigating through today’s challenging times by getting back to basics—strategy, design, testing and donor management.
