“I firmly believe that the success of the sector is reliant on a new type of leader - one who embraces change; is entrepreneurial in outlook; who continually looks outwards to learn new things and yet is rooted in a strong sense of values, core purpose and public service.” Diane Lees, Director General, Imperial War Museums
The second event in our Fundraising and Philanthropy series of 2016 took place on Tuesday 8 November in the Ashmolean’s Headley Lecture Theatre. Louisa Pharoah, Director of Development & Research at the ss Great Britain Trust, gave the first keynote of the day. The ss Great Britain carefully balances its roles as a visitor attraction, an archive, and a library as well as running an education programme.
On 26 September 2016 about 100 colleagues from across the Oxford University Museums came to the Ashmolean for the 2016 staff conference, an afternoon of lightning talks where colleagues share a taste of what they are up to with their colleagues working across all four museums in every department.
Over the next few weeks we'll be sharing some videos from the conference to give a sneak peak into some of our work.
