This is a rare opportunity to network with other CEOs and senior management professionals from charities, associations and other non-profit organisations. Ample opportunity will be given for you to discuss issues and network with others.

    The Topic

    Modern Leadership Principles in Challenging Times

    Join Marcus as he discusses how to navigate leadership in today’s challenging environment in which change is perpetual.

    “In many ways I feel that a relatively difficult trading environment in Australia in recent years has created a short-term mentality and hesitant decision making. It’s time for us to break free from that and I hope to articulate some of the reasons and ways during this session.”

    The Speaker

     Marcus Stafford, Chief Executive Officer, MSWA

    Marcus Stafford has held senior management positions in large and small organisations around the world. Industries have included banking, freight forwarding/logistics, management consulting and not-for-profit.

    Marcus is currently the CEO of MSWA in Western Australia, an organisation with over $55 million in revenue and 750 staff. He has also led the turnaround of the MS Society in South Australia and the Northern Territory.

    Prior to his roles in not-for-profit organisations, Marcus’ background was entirely in commercial business, having held the position of Head of Retail Banking for BankWest for 12 years. In 2015 Marcus won AIM’s national award for Australia’s Not-For-Profit Manager/CEO of the Year and in 2017 was made a Member of the Order of Australia in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

    The Topic

    The Challenge of Modern Governance

    Governance – a much used but often misunderstood term. In his talk Kim will examine governance practices in the context of the modern NFP enterprise. What does governance mean for the organisation as a whole and what part do the various stakeholders play in establishing and maintaining good governance? 

    Kim will use real life examples to show what causes governance failures and the fallout for both enterprises and individuals. He will share his experiences as the incoming CEO of a number of high profile NFP’s who have found themselves in trouble and describe the processes he has used to effect positive change.

    Workshop (Melbourne) - The Power of Prediction

    Further Information

    This AuSAE event provides an exclusive environment for motivated association executives to gain insights and advice from other industry professionals. This event enables members to raise and discuss critical issues affecting industry and network with other professionals from the not-for-profit sector.

    The Topic

    Engagement tracking/scoring is currently a ‘hot’ topic for many association executives. But just scoring a member’s historical involvement may be ‘too little, too late’ for many organisations. What if it was possible to accurately predict (using data you already have available) - a member’s future engagement? For progressive organisations, ‘big data’ analytics and predictive modelling techniques and technology are emerging as the ‘next big thing’. At this interactive workshop, Paul will share his insights on how advanced technology - originally only accessible to Fortune 500 size companies – is today enabling membership based organisations like yours to develop predictive models of member behaviour that can be applied across the entire organisation – to predict not just member engagement and satisfaction, but to also provide more accurate forecasts for individual member renewals, event registrations, course enrolments, product purchases, committee involvement, and other key association specific activities.

    Case studies from leading associations from around the world will be used as well as hands-on exercises to help you understand the full potential and the power of prediction.
