    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.

    Technology, economics, and demographics. Since the year 2000, associations have experienced a barrage of challenges that have weakened their position in the marketplace and forever altered their futures. The meaning of membership has shifted and now, more than ever, associations need to be able to prove that membership provides a return on investment to their members—especially its youngest members and prospects.

    During this full day workshop, Sarah will present on the new membership mindset, which will introduce and define characteristics of the “new and next” generations: Millennials, and Generation Z. She will discuss what associations must do to stay relevant and engage their participation. Sarah will also conduct a spotlight on best practice, focusing on associations who have successfully launched a future-focused membership or marketing strategy and the results they observed.

    Join us for this one day workshop to develop your own membership action plan so you come away ready to start expanding and future-proofing your association immediately!

    • Identify the primary obstacles preventing your association’s competitiveness and growth
    • Gain strategies and tools to curb membership turnover
    • Learn how to increase value and grow membership among younger generations
    • Gain insights into the trends and shifts likely to challenge your association in the next 5 years

    The Topic

    Welcome to the Talent Economy—a 21st century economy characterised by unprecedented innovation, connectivity, disruption, and opportunity. Unfortunately, the positive attributes of this economy have been largely overshadowed by employee turnover, skills gaps, and the struggle to simply keep up with the rapid pace of change.

    Until now, we’ve just assumed there is no other way. But Sarah Sladek proves there is another way.

    Drawing from documented workforce and talent-development research, her presentation cites numerous examples of organisations that have been capable of engaging employees in this era of disruption—what they did, why it worked, and how it’s made a difference to the organisations’ outlook and bottom line.

    Sladek proves that it’s possible to create an organisation designed to engage talent, and she will provide the audience with the guidance to do it. 

    • Gain a better understanding of what is causing employee turnover and how to resolve it
    • Learn the traits shared among the most engaging and successful organisations in existence today
    • Understand the core differences between struggling and successful companies
    • Learn how to inspire and motivate your workforce and thrive in an era of disruption
