Here at NFP Connect we offer support, connection and education through various events, for those working for and with local charities and not-for-profits.
Our NFP Connect Breakfast is predominantly for not-for-profit employees, owners, leaders and anyone related to the field or interested in the monthly topic.
We also run peer to peer mentoring, coffee catch up and planning workshops throughout the year.
GOOD NEWS … I’m not calling off the APRIL breakfast because we need to know how to address these issues that we are facing as charities with regards to the current climate.
I’ve gathered a few key leaders in our industry to help facilitate and hold a discussion on not only how we SURVIVE but how we might THRIVE through this time!
How do we get through this current climate with what is happening in the world?
What are the blessings and opportunities that have come from this?
What is possible when we come out of the other end?
The world has declared this a pandemic, and after the recent fires, the dismay is ever encompassing. But as an optimist, I believe that – where there is darkness, there is also light.
