The Not-For-Profit People Conference is back on on 19-20 November, and we’re excited to announce that we have 15 scholarship tickets to give away to small, Australia-based not-for-profit organisations to attend, free of charge!
So if you work at a small not-for-profit and can’t afford to attend the 2018 Conference in Melbourne, you may be eligible for a scholarship to attend the two-day conference.
We’re inviting applications from any Australian not-for-profit organisation with fewer than 50 staff, with preference given to those located outside of Melbourne.
What will you get out of the conference?
You’ll be joining 500+ other NFP professionals – senior leaders, HR and volunteer management professionals, and team leaders – to hear advice and case studies on how to attract, manage, train and retain the best staff and volunteers for the NFP sector.
You’ll hear from those working in some of the most successful NFPs in the country, as well as experts and innovators from the private sector, government and academia.
And you’ll get to mingle, ask questions and share your experiences with colleagues from big and small NFP organisations around Australia.
The conference covers six core areas:
- Managing people well
- Strengthening HR
- People and organisational strategy
- Health and wellbeing
We’ll be releasing our preliminary program in coming weeks, but some of our 100+ past speakers include NFP-sector luminaries like Catherine Yeomans, CEO of Mission Australia, and Lisa O’Brien, CEO of the Smith Family, Tim Costello, CEO of World Vision and Helen Szoke, Oxfam Australia Chief Executive; as well as experts and leaders from outside the sector, like Head of HR at Google Australia Sarah Robb, Group Executive People & Culture at Virgin Australia Geraldine Chin Moody, former Victoria Police Commissioner Christine Nixon, and Olympic gold medallist Nova Peris.
