Here at NFP Connect we offer support, connection and education through various monthly events, for those working for and with local charities and not-for-profits.
Who is the NFP Connect Breakfast for? Predominantly for not-for-profit employees, owners, leaders and anyone related to the field or interested in the monthly topic.
Why attend? NFP Connect is having a profound effect in the not-for-profit sector in the Hunter Region as it unites organisations to network, support each other and benefit from training tailored to the industry’s unique troubles.
The monthly breakfasts are a great way to start your morning with a hot breakfast and opportunity to share and network with others in the sector and get some tips and tricks to help you in your role.
Getting back to our roots and where it all started, Coffee Connect is a time to network with those working in the not for profit space, for a cup of coffee and a chat about what is happening in their world and ours.
Peer-to-peer mentoring program
The NFP Connect 12-week peer-to-peer mentoring program is for those working in the not-for-profit/charity sector to help you achieve success in your role and identify areas for improvement.
Our short sharp interactive workshops help create a balanced, productive, motivated work and personal life for you and your team. Each workshop is tailored to meet your business objectives and helps you overcome the challenges you and your team are facing.
For our March Breakfast we bring you Charlotte Thaarup-Owen who is one of Australia’s leading experts on Mindfulness. Charlotte will focus on why mindfulness of the body is the most useful and powerful transformational tool.
Mindfulness of the body is for you if you
– Tried many things but still feel stressed and anxious
– Have problems switching off
– Want some powerful tools that work in your daily life
– Find it hard to break habits that just don’t work for you
Start freeing yourself from stress and overwhelm and welcoming more peace, presence and wisdom through mindfulness of the body.
Speaker: Charlotte Thaarup whose ‘Resilient and Thriving People’ Mindfulness program, and her ‘Mindful Leadership program’ are some of the first corporate mindfulness programs within Australia. Both programs have been researched showing powerful results, with a reduction in stress levels between 30-39%. Charlotte has over 20 years experience in facilitating change and personal and interpersonal development as well as leadership training, retreats and 360 feedback. She is a registered and accredited mediator and has worked at executive level in both the public and not for profit sectors.
