Tim JohnsonThe World Association of Eye Hospitals is delighted to announce Tim Johnson as the keynote speaker for the special philanthropy and eye health workshop which will take place on Wednesday 5 June 2019 as part of WAEH 2019.  Tim Johnson is a Partner at More Partnership, an international fundraising consulting firm.  Tim was previously Director of Development and then Chief Executive of Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity (until March 2019).  Under Tim’s leadership Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity has raised over £1bn since 2002 towards treating more patients, advancing pioneering research to improve patient outcomes and helping to enhance the experience for patients and their families.  

Robert Dufton, CEO of Moorfields Eye Charity and Chair of WAEH philanthropy and eye health workshop said:  “We are delighted to welcome Tim Johnson as our keynote speaker.  Tim has significantly increased the amount of funds raised to support one of the world’s leading centres in children’s healthcare (and which is a partner of Moorfields Eye Hospital with whom it has five jointly appointed paediatric ophthalmologist consultants) but he has also introduced high standards of fundraising and good governance.  He is one of the leading advisers on fundraising across the health sector and more broadly.”

Following on from the high level of interest in the WAEH 2018 conference theme of eye health philanthropy, WAEH is pleased that a group of experienced philanthropy practitioners drawn from WAEH members are going to run a philanthropy workshop as part of WAEH 2019 at Moorfields.

The workshop will be led by: Libby Bryce Bell, Senior Director of Development, Wilmer Eye Institute, John Hopkins University; Robert Dufton, Chief Executive, Moorfields Eye Charity and Honorary Visiting Fellow, Centre for Charity Effectiveness, Cass Business School, City, University of London; Rachel Jones, Director of Development, Moorfields Eye Charity; and Patrik Malmungar, Fundraising Manager, St Erik Eye Hospital, Sweden and formerly at international fundraising consultants Brakeley Nordic.

The workshop is for up to 40 representatives of WAEH members. It will be participatory in nature, and organised as a “world café” so delegates in groups will rotate to cover each of the four topics. The allocation of participants to groups will be done to ensure the most practical learning sessions.

The suggested topics are:

  • Getting started on fundraising
  • How to engage clinicians in fundraising
  • Getting existing donors to become connectors to new donors
  • Developing ethical principles for health fundraising

Workshop participants will be asked to agree in advance to become part of an ongoing, online WAEH Fundraising community of practice.
