Online State Events: open to everyone!

Fundraisers now have a wide selection of state events to attend via Zoom that offer insights and expertise on an array of relevant fundraising subjects!


Community events and fundraising have taken a massive hit in the current COVID-19 environment. Participants have been unable to come together and support the causes that they care about; RSPCA NSW ‘Million Paws Walk’ is one of those causes.

Phoebe Brasher, Community Fundraising Manager at RSPCA NSW, and Sonya Tufnell, Campaigns Manager at RSPCA QLD, will present a session on how RSPCA successfully pivoted from a physical event to a virtual event.

In particular, they will answer:

  • What were the challenges RSPCA faced?
  • What were their concerns?
  • What were the consequences of inaction?
  • What were their hopes and wishes?
  • How did they achieve the change?
  • What did they do differently and what did they learn
  • What results did they get, and
  • How much of this do they expect will inform future ways of working?

This case study-led session will be rich with practical lessons, advice and tips on how you can make such a fundamental shift for your events.

The session will also include a dedicated Q&A section and you’re encouraged to submit a question you’d like discussed while registering.

Date: Tuesday 2 June 2020
Time: 1.00pm – 2.00pm AEST (12.30pm SA and 11.00am WA)

This session will be delivered online. Details on how to access the session will be shared with registered participants.

The session will include a discussion on ways to ensure you’re focussing your time and energy on your top prospects, while increasing your bequest prospect pool to grow future bequest revenue.

Many organisations – including those in the NFP space – incorrectly think of ‘brand’ as just a ‘marketing thing’ and a cost to the business. How wrong they are. In this entertaining presentation, Greg Kavanagh, Principal & Director of Branded Culture will help you better understand exactly what a brand is, why it can be a company’s most valuable commercial asset and why everyone is responsible for it in your organisation.
