Ask Direct's brilliant Fundraising Summer School returns this year with a rallying cry: 'We're rebels with a cause'

As ever, the line-up of speakers is tantalising and you can be sure to be challenged, informed and entertained in every session.

For example, in his session Jeff Brooks will explore what fundraisers can learn from some stupid ads; Mark Phillips and Amber Nathan will ask what donors actually think about being asked for money; and Sian Norris and Aline Reed will explain how to tell powerful stories.

And you won't want to miss one of the two wildcard sessions in which Rachel Hewitt will look at the politics of emotion and Brian Dooley will draw parallels between the civil rights movements of the sixties and the current crises in the Middle East.
