E146 - Diversifying our sector with Kemar Walford
In this episode, we speak to Kemar Walford, a fundraising Avocado+ Consultant at Money4YOU.

We also explore how charities can improve their recruitment models and where a career in the sector is seen as a viable and attractive option for every community. Kemar also discusses how we can dispel some of the myths about working in the sector.

Fascinating insights into the work of charities
Very informative. I listen when I'm commuting into work and its helped to change the way i think about the wonderful work of the Not for Profit sector. Keep it up. I hope more people can find this as a result of this review.
Great content but audio is off
This is really great content for work where I’m trying to learn more about the world and how to start a charity myself. My only feedback is the audio isn’t great and I have to have it louder to hear.
