“Government funding and elections - getting on the front foot”

Some organisations are fully reliant on government funding and others are starting out on this journey, either applying for government grants and tenders for the first time, or building a strategy aligned to government policy and direction.

In this session, you’ll hear from our specialists who are helping organisations excel across all of these areas. We’ll also take a look at what’s coming down the line in FY25 in terms of change of governments, budget cycles and help you get on the front foot for these changes.

“Feasibility - best practice tools to test your ideas"

You’re ready to test some new ideas, but what’s a lean way to test the viability of your ideas? In this session, we hear from three specialists across business planning, finance and fundraising around the tools and strategies they use to help with feasibility testing, prototyping and iterating.

What questions should you ask yourself, your stakeholders and donors? What blindspots do you need to consider? What are lean ways to test, learn and iterate before spending too much time in one area? What is the mindset of our organisation? How can we better use a case for support?

“Enterprise and trading activity - how to truly shine"

Set up a social enterprise or trading activity, they say. It will be easy and help provide income to support your mission. Many good intentioned organisations have been down that path, only to find that there is much more to establishing, enhancing or expanding paid services as a way to achieve your impact and raise income.

We bring together our business planning, enterprise development and marketing specialists to this session to look at the resourcing, skill set, capabilities, investment required to succeed, and how to amplify impact with trading activities aligned to your mission.
