    During the two webinars, we will be exploring how best to go about thinking strategically to respond in these challenging times.

    Strategy is about making choices - but to make a choice, you must create options. We want you to choose your best idea, not pursue your first idea. To help you do this we will take you through a process of thinking. 

    We will firstly help you to gain clarity on the strategic problem you are now faced with solving - this is different for everyone and almost always relates to customer, revenue or competition, or a combination of both. The current pandemic is the cause, not the result.

    We will then consider how to identify distinctively different possibilities to overcome the problem you have defined. It is critical to find more than one option. For each option we need to understand what you will aspire to achieve; where you will focus your resources and energy; what you will do to ensure success; and the capabilities you will need to win.

    Finally, we will move from creativity to science in an effort to understand "what needs to be true" for your ideas to succeed. This involves developing tests to give yourselves the necessary confidence to execute. 

    By the end of these webinars, you should have a clear process to follow; the understanding to make great strategic decisions and the confidence to successfully lead your organisation through the next 12 months.

    Join us for an AuSAE Partner Catch Up 


    Given the changing landscape and exceptional circumstances surrounding COVID-19, it is a challenging time for our members, partners and association community. We would like the opportunity to connect with our partners and share what AuSAE members are being impacted by and learn what they are hearing from their association connections.


    Many of us are now working from home so we would like to invite you to join us for a virtual networking catch up.


    Facilitated by our CEO, Toni Brearley, we hope this forum will be a productive one to discuss how we can collectively support associations that are pivoting during a time of significant change.


    When?

    Tuesday 7th April

    4pm - 5pm AEST


    BYO – drinks and nibbles


    We will invite one person from each organisation to share a quick introduction of what the organisation does and how it supports associations. After introductions we will have some facilitated networking where we will hear member issues, how partners have been able to assist, what members need and how we can collaborate to support the sector. Remember, we are all in this together. 


    We hope you can join us, once you have registered for this online event, you will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link for the meeting.

    Many of our members are now working from home so we would like to invite you to join us for a virtual coffee catch up, 


    Given the changing landscape and exceptional circumstances surrounding COVID-19, it is a challenging time for our members and AuSAE community. We would like the opportunity to chat with you first hand and learn more about the impacts that you and your members are experiencing. 


    Facilitated by our GM NZ, Brett Jeffery, we hope this discussion will be a productive one to discuss how associations are pivoting during a time of significant change, new ideas on how you will continue to support members with the inability to meet face to face and how small associations are managing critical business and finance issues over this time. 


    We have already had the opportunity to speak with some of our members and community, and the heartfelt support of AuSAE and each other has been very positive to witness. It is in times like this that we come together, that relationships cultivated over time become the foundations for what will support our recovery.

    • Webinars – Strengthening Associations
    Register

    We’re now a mobile-first society. Mobile apps are how we conveniently choose to consume content, receive information, register, book, purchase and communicate. Your members are no different.

    It’s no secret many organisations are currently in a state of scramble as they restrategize the cancelled events, meetings and educational opportunities they rely on each year to bring their members together. The Coronavirus has affected countless gatherings and continues to do so. What’s ultimately been brought to light throughout this tumultuous time however, is the power that technology solutions hold in being able to bring us together when congregating in person isn’t possible.

    In this webinar, we’ll explain the business case for having a mobile app.  We’ll take a look at how membership apps are making a major impact in the association space with their transformative ability to empower communities by bringing them together, keeping them informed, and generating greater connectivity and we’ll showcase how associations are successfully leveraging their apps.
