Our commitment to supporting quality leaders is about providing individuals with the context and content to understand how they can best contribute to improved societal outcomes

Our workshops & events

Our learning and development workshops up-skill candidates creating a pathway in to our growing network, ensuring they are well-versed in the key trends, challenges and opportunities that exist in the for-purpose arena.

We run workshops and networking events for individuals who are looking to secure executive and board roles. We also work with corporates to tailor workshops for staff who are keen to learn more about the non-profit sector and to make a plan as to how they are able to contribute their skills volunteering or as a non-executive director.

I would highly recommend the Head and Heart Workshop for anyone who is looking at building or advancing their career in the 'for purpose' sector. Rachael McLennan is an excellent facilitator and provides a unique perspective with leadership insights and vital information on this sector, which I believe is not available anywhere else.

Raj Narayan, Non Executive Director

The Head & Heart workshop was fantastic. It was inspiring and informative and it helped me clarify my personal purpose and understand how I can best use my skills and experience to contribute to the for-purpose sector. It also gave me tremendous insight into just how big, complex and sophisticated the sector is.
