Biodiversity Conservation Trust Lachlan Corridor Conservation Tender Information Sessions at Condobolin and Forbes
If you missed the previous sessions, there is still a chance to be part of the two remaining sessions. Details on the flier below:
Are you part of a local committee or community group?
Are your meetings too long?
Could they be more productive?
Would you like increase member numbers and contributions?
Do you have issues you would like to overcome, but don't know how?
If you answered yes to any (or all) of these questions then why not come along to one of these workshops and learn ways to amplify the positive impact of your group from world renowned presenter Steven Bowman.
Governance and strategic planning can be considered boring or a 'box ticking' exercise. Over the course of the two days Steven will demystify governance and simplify strategic planning, freeing up time and providing direction for your group.
Who should attend
Registration is open to regional board and committee members, their project officers and managers from any industry, not-for-profit, community service, natural resource management agency or organisation that would like to improve their performance. With a diverse range of professionals expected, the workshops will also provide an excellent opportunity for networking.
Steven is a global governance and senior executive team specialist.
His consultancy, Conscious Governance is an international, independent advisory service for non-profit boards, CEOs and Directors, providing strategic planning, board governance, leadership and risk management consulting services.
