IWITOT is SOFII’s huge­ly suc­cess­ful annu­al flag­ship event in London. 

On Thurs­day 18th Jan­u­ary 2018, eigh­teen hand-picked speak­ers cho­sen from the spec­trum of fundrais­ing spe­cial­ists each pre­sent­ed a sin­gle inspir­ing fundrais­ing idea that they wish they’d thought of – an inno­v­a­tive, replic­a­ble idea that we can all learn from. But the caveat was the idea could not be their own and must be some­one else’s.

You can watch the whole unedit­ed IWITOT 2018 here.
