Feedback from our members

"Ever since my first Charity IT Leaders meeting back in 2016 I’ve felt empowered by the fact that I was surrounded by a variety of hugely talented people who are all driven to solve similar, big problems. I’ve made extensive use of the network, quarterlies and especially the annual conference. I liked it so much I sat as a trustee for a couple of years." - Danny Attias, Chief Digital and Information Officer
"It is never more important to have a good network of peers to call upon when the chips are down or you need some variety and insight to enthuse you. Charity IT Leaders has given me that network and I am always grateful for the shared understanding, insight and spark it gives me." - Laura Dawson, Chief Information Officer
