    Another month has gone by and don’t ask me where that went. I just don’t know. But what I do know is that we must soldier on. And part of soldiering on is learning new things that help our organisation become stronger and be more effective. That’s why we have come up some grass roots topics you’ll love.

    What's New

    Strategic Planning [Course]

    This advanced webinar workshop on strategic planning is suitable to service based boards as we talk about methodology; research and how the theory of change helps build your strategy. Interested in those topics? Jump in! You’ll hear from our expert-in-residence, Natalie Bramble.  

    Governance 101

    Governance 101 Workshop 

    Every organisation wants to make a difference, but internal issues distract us. If you’re wanting to start-up; review or refresh your organisation and think about how to instil good governance practices and culture, then this session is for you. Short, snappy webinars of 1/2 hour each, held over two sessions and yes, on a Saturday to help all those great volunteers outside working hours!
    Run an effective meeting

    5 Top tips on How to Run an Effective Meeting

    Do your meetings start or finish late? Do people talk over one another? Are previous minutes, reports, and other relevant documents available to read. If your meetings aren’t well run, people may stop attending, not participate or add value during in meetings, or not feel valued.

    Well run meetings can help with: board and committee retention, keep members and volunteers informed, stay on track of important financial and legal issues, and make meetings enjoyable instead of a chore. 

    We’ve Been Busy

    It’s been a big month and the work we’re doing in the community is so exciting. 

    We’ve delivered fundraising; governance and grant writing training sessions for community groups and we were so chuffed to get this great feedback from the City of Sydney who hosted a few webinar sessions for their community.  

    We just love to hear the difference we’re making to community groups and this was one of the highlight responses the council team shared with us “I have written 100’s of grants. I have learned more in the last 2 hours, I cannot believe it. Thank you so much”  Awww… this is the stuff that makes us continue our purpose to deliver you relevant, practical learning that makes a real difference!
