Upcoming Events:

Lunch and Learn – Impact Reporting

We exist to make an impact – and yet, so many organisations lack the frameworks to be able to report effectively on the impact they are creating.

Join us to hear from Chris Clark, Manager, Strategic Relationships, and External Engagement at Arts Centre Melbourne to learn about an innovative model for impact reporting. 

This is a fantastic framework for distilling incredibly complex information down to what really matters.

The session will provide a case study for development of a strategic framework for impact reporting.

It’s Not Business as Usual Anymore! – Exclusive Workshop with Ted Garrard

An opportunity not to be missed – Melbourne only. Join us for an afternoon with the CEO of SickKids Foundation, Ted Garrard in his only Australian public event. 
Strong headwinds are impacting the charitable sectors in countries around the world: fewer donors giving, stagnant growth in revenue, heightened scrutiny about our relevance and impact, generational shifts in our donor bases, and a revolution in how the public consumes information. If we don’t adapt, we risk not being able to achieve our missions, or worse yet, becoming irrelevant. Are we ready for the challenge?
Ted Garrard, CEO of SickKids Foundation in Toronto, Canada, will provide a comprehensive analysis of the issues challenging charities today and identify how successful charities are adapting.
