SESSION II | In for a Penny, in for a Pound
Accountability. What used to be a buzz word is now the standard in today’s world. Whether revenue comes from a ticket sale, donor, sponsor or government funder, we are engaging with a stakeholder who has an expectation regarding their investment. In a sector where much of the gain is ephemeral, how do we measure and communicate our successes (and failures)? We will speak with a variety of distinct funding organizations to explore the concept of accountability and how it relates to our own strategies.
