    • Webinars – Strengthening Associations

    As we slowly start to transition into a new phase of business during COVID-19, NFPs and charities are now looking for ways to continue business with restrictions in place for the foreseeable future.

    Boards must now begin to reassess how their NFP or charity is performing during COVID-19, and their new long term goals and concerns. Boards must reconsider their stakeholders and their capacity to support the organisation, the future of government grants, as well as whether their operations continue to satisfy their NFP or charitable purpose. Finally, NFPs and charities should continue to proceed with caution when considering becoming party to any contracts during and post COVID-19.

    This presentation will:

    • Provide an update on government incentives and legislative changes for NFPs and charities; 
    • Provide guidance on how boards and senior management should strategise during the coming months for the long term benefit of the organisation; and
    • Discuss what NFPs and charities should be considering when negotiating any contracts during and post COVID-19.

    • Webinars – Supporting Association Leaders

    With face to face communication gone for the time being, how can your Association create impactful and memorable engagement opportunities to connect with your members and stake-holders online.

    Whether connecting via social media, webinars, podcasts, through video content or on platforms like Zoom – how can you ensure your communications will cut through and be noticed by your target audience.

    Developing your Association’s (and your own) online presence will be a vital tool for the near future - but will certainly continue to be a useful skill when the current crisis is over and we return to business as (un) usual.

    Areas covered include: 

    • Simplifying your key messages
    • Using social media posts creatively so they stand out
    • How to inject your own personality into your online presentation
    • Why videos work and why you should be using them more
    • How do online webinar presentations differ from live (in person) presentations and what elements remain the same?
    • Presenting From Home – ensuring your surroundings look and sound professional and as perfect as possible.
    • Creative learnings from late night TV shows which have transitioned to online
