IWITOT is SOFII’s hugely successful annual flagship event in London. It was held on Thursday 21st February 2019 with a Love Fundraising theme.
In a single afternoon, eighteen hand-picked speakers chosen from the spectrum of fundraising specialists 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.
