Imagine…

Imagine the community sector in 20 years’ time. How will boards need to evolve? This Unconvention explores how organisations could be structured and led in the future, and how this impacts governance. How can boards act now to build the capabilities required to enact the future? Together we will gaze into the future and create a collective vision!

Topics include:
– What it means to be an exceptional leader on a not-for-profit board?
– What leadership and governance skills are required for board directors to navigate new futures?
– How do you collectively enhance the way you govern to improve outcomes?

5 Reasons to Attend the Next Unconvention

1.    Be prepared for the future

Be exposed to great thought leaders including Adam Jorlen, who specialises in strategic foresight and entrepreneurship, as he shares his perspectives on where community organisations will be in 20 years’ time.

We are privileged to have a diverse panel session after Adam’s presentation which will be hosted in a similar way to the ABC’s Q&A.  You can tweet your question to panelists at #PerthUncon.

2.   Connect with a diverse range of leaders

We engage a broad range of leaders at our Unconventions – board directors, senior NFP leaders, young professionals, corporate, social enterprise and government.  We aim for cross industry discussions and networking to break down silos and achieve more robust results.   This is reflected in our speakers and panels as well as participants.

3.   Utilise GroupMap for online collaboration

We have utilised Groupmap in the past and we are bringing it back again for this Unconvention. Our aim is to think better together with Groupmap.  Throughout the Unconvention we will brainstorm and discuss questions together with this online collaboration tool.  It’s a brilliant tool to use and we are happy to showcase it at the Unconvention.

4.    Enhance your leadership skills

Build your leadership toolbox with the skills necessary to deal with current and future leadership scenarios such as organisational mergers.  Justine Colyer, CEO of Rise and recipient of the Telstra Business Women’s Community and Government Award will share her experience in the current environment of mergers and acquisitions.

Stretch and challenge your leadership assumptions about who might be best to serve and lead on community boards during this time of change and innovation.

5.    New venue – moving to the Perth city

Yes, this will be our first Unconvention hosted in the city by Herbert Smith Freehills.  Be inspired by the exceptional views as we gaze into the future of board governance and leadership.
