Dear Not-For-Profit Leader
2020 has been an ‘interesting year’ and has really put the sector under even greater pressure to support communities that have struggled to cope. Many of our teams are tapped out, reserves are spent and yet the demand for help is unrelenting. We are wanting to support you and bridge the gap for inspiration and skills needed to thrive in 2021 and beyond.
We have gathered together a one-day programme that is truly inspirational with speakers who understand the sector, share a heart for community and have some breakthrough ideas that you can apply in your organisation almost immediately.
Nett proceeds from the 2021 Not-For-Profit Sector Summit will go directly to fund a deserving charity.
With your help, we can meet our goal of $10,000.
When you register for the Summit, you decide what you want to pay to attend, starting from just $25 for access to the entire event. There are no other fees for attendance.
So what do you get for your registration fee?

About the presenters
Aly McNicoll, Director NZ Coaching & Mentoring Centre/LEAD Centre for Not for Profit Governance & Leadership
Aly McNicoll has been involved with coaching and mentoring in NZ and Australia for the last 12 years with a particular interest in training. She has refined techniques for both introducing coaching as a skill set and promoting learning as a way of being in teams and organisations.
Aly is a regular presenter at international conferences (American Society for Training & Development Conference, European Mentoring & Coaching Council Conference) where her specialist skills in peer learning techniques have led to her spending increasing proportions of her time working with clients in Australia, the UK and the USA.
Aly is a member of the European Mentoring & Coaching Council and an international associate of Clutterbuck Associates (UK).
Prior to her corporate training role, Aly has led leadership and management programmes at Unitec Institute of Technology where she also spent 4 years training tutors in the staff development unit. She is also a qualified counsellor.
We have always said that leadership is a bit like swimming - you can only learn it by diving in and thrashing around. 2020 has thrown leaders in the deep end and provided a crash course in leading through complexity, change and uncertainty. Forget about being agile, we have needed something more radical this year - leaders who can move fast even if they have no idea where they are going. This keynote workshop will look at how leaders need to think differently, engage differently and act differently in this new normal, complex world. The challenges ahead are too big for individuals and the leaders who succeed will be those who can step out of their comfort zone, move from ‘me to we’, and inspire others to step up and deliver exceptional results.
Aly will present the keynote on Reinventing Leadership – simple habits for complex times
