Workshops Roadmap to Resilience Recognising the challenges facing charities Paul Collins and Sarah Pearson will lead a discussion on a planning framework to help them set out their next steps as they return to work while keeping risks and opportunities at the forefront. • COVID-19 has caused major disruption to how businesses are able to work – operational and financial challenges allied to increased demand for services. • As lockdown lifts, adapting to the new normal is crucial to maintaining services and sustaining funding. Ecclesiastical has used its risk expertise to help businesses prepare and this includes a set of tools to help businesses identify any potential impact, risks and opportunities going forward. These include checklists to look at the impact of the pandemic on the business – for example cash flow issues, whether a lack of technology has hampered delivery of service, to the challenges of keeping stakeholders informed as well as tips to support immediate changes to how your organisation works. This process will enable you to better prepare for and mitigate the impact of future disruption. Facilitators Paul Collins ACII Chartered Insurer, CDipAF, DipSHWW. Head of Risk Management Ecclesiastical Insurance Ireland Paul is Head of Risk Management for Ecclesiastical throughout Ireland. With over 35 years in the insurance profession, he has a wealth of experience across a range of roles including underwriting, claims, loss adjusting, risk surveying and enterprise risk management.

Workshops The Future Isn’t What It Used To Be - Looking Beyond COVID To A New Normal The COVID-19 pandemic has generated unique challenges, forcing organisations to respond to unprecedented events at previously unknown speed. Many organisations are currently focused on short-term survival, responding to ever shifting events and trying to pivot home based operations, re-configure workplaces and keep operating effectively. But we have reached the point where leaders now need to look ‘over the hill’ beyond the current challenges of near-term survival and start to plan for the new ‘normal’. Whilst we can’t predict exactly what the immediate future holds, we believe the situation will never fully return to business as we knew it before the pandemic, and perhaps that is a good thing. This workshop will explore a number of themes and reflections on future organisations and workplaces which are emerging from the COVID-19 crisis. We will explore emerging hybrid organisational models; the rise of the remote homeworker; the arrival of permanent flexibility; the acceleration of digital transformation and the emergence of new working practices. This workshop takes a step into a transformed workplace…. A re-imagined place because as we emerge from an era-defining period of disruption, our focus is gradually shifting from crisis management to developing the organisations of a new working world. ‘There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.’ attributed to Vladimir Ilyich Lenin Facilitator Donal Laverty Donal Laverty is Consulting Partner at Baker Tilly Mooney Moore and he leads the HR/OD Consulting Group for Baker Tilly International. An Organisation Design and Development specialist in essence, Donal’s range of skills and experience lie in assisting organisations transform their structure, their performance and their people. Donal is the immediate past Chair of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, teaches at two universities and is a regular contributor to thought leadership around organisations, change and management.

Workshops The Rising Tide of ESG Investing– Are you ready for the next wave? In 2020, we find ourselves under more pressure than ever to adhere to the principles of sustainability, and that is no different in the investment world. The impact of COVID-19 has galvanised and strengthened the movement towards sustainable investing. ESG investing is an approach where Environmental, Social and Governance factors of companies are considered as part of the wider research process. This is based on the idea that a lack of compliance in these areas is a serious risk to the long-term viability of business models. In this interactive workshop, we will cover the following questions: · What does ESG & Responsible Investing really mean? What impact has government response to COVID-19 had on Sustainable investing? What does this mean for you as charity trustees? What responsibilities do you have? · How can you prove to your stakeholders that you have a responsible investment process? · Will there be more regulation on responsible investing? How will that impact you? Facilitators Chris O’Neill Chris O’Neill is a Partner at Cunningham Coates and is the charity specialist within the Belfast office, having managed a large number of clients within this sector since 2008. Chris also manages portfolios for private clients in a wide range of tax environments, including pension funds, ISAs, non-standard residence and domicile. Jessica Pearson Jessica Pearson is an Assistant Investment Manager, having recently qualified with the CISI Chartered Wealth Manager qualification. She has a keen interest in responsible investing within charities and trusts.

Workshops No Time To Diversify As a board member or chief officer, the organisation you lead has had an eventful year. You’ve dealt with the usual pressures that it has faced in raising core and project funding, recovering from political discontinuity at Stormont, and Brexit planning. Then came the spectre of Covid-19. Your board had to get on top of the rapid decision-making needed to reconfigure services to meet the needs of its beneficiaries and its staff during lockdown, social distancing and the new Age of Zoom. Issues like board diversity and its effective representation of your service users took a back seat while everyone was legitimately firefighting and reorganising. But how effective was your board during this crunch period? Did you have the range of skills needed to make fast, effective decisions to support staff and clients? And how much did your board members’ lived experience help inform those decisions? Facilitated by Engage Director Patrick Minne, this 45-minute session will explore the advantages to organisations, and to their mission, of authentic diversity on boards. We’ll discuss the practical obstacles on the road to board diversity, and suggest how these might be overcome. Joining Patrick to share their ideas are: Panelists Conor Curran – Head of Diversity and Inclusion, Queen’s University Belfast Conor is a qualified employment lawyer and HR professional with 15 years’ experience of embedding effective D&I strategies in large complex organisations, having previously worked in the policing, justice and health sectors.
