This event has now closed but you can book for the Not-For-Profit Sector Conference 2018.

Looking at the bigger picture

Do you need time to step back from the frenzy of everyday work to look at the bigger picture?

  • To find new ideas, think strategically or improve and develop your own work practices?
  • Or to have the opportunity to meet hundreds of your sector colleagues to find out how they’re approaching the same workplace challenges you’re facing?

The National Not-For-Profit Sector Conference offers that unique opportunity.

This year’s conference will be held at the Quality Inn, Parnell over 13 – 14 February, 2017.

Over two packed days, you will hear advice and case studies from experts working in some of the most successful NFPs in the country, as well as leading innovators. They will be sharing the latest ideas and best practices that you can apply in strategizing, attracting, training and retaining the best people for the NFP sector – ideas that could help transform your organisation.

What is new in 2017

2017 is our eleventh conference, and is gearing up to be a great event – with an excellent speaker line up, covering an even broader range of the sector’s most pressing issues. The conference program is designed with additional content for managers and team leaders. That means there is three parallel sessions to choose from over the two days, plus four big keynote presentations.

The 5 core themes of the 2017 Not-For-Profit Conference are:

  • Leadership
  • Future Thinking
  • Managing people well and organisational strategy
  • Evaluation that empowers action
  • Communicating and connecting with the corporate world
