In this 60-minute webinar, our expert presenters from Spark Strategy will help you to reimagine what your government engagement can achieve.  

Australians are living through enormous social change. Governments are increasingly challenged to solve ever more complex and pressing problems and they’re doing so with less expertise and capability.

The voice of purpose-led organisations are needed in government decision making to ensure funding, policy reform and legislation reflects the values and expectations of the community and the challenges before us.

To assist purpose-led leaders, managers and staff, Spark has developed a practical session which demystifies government engagement and provides a clear framework and principles to utilise, for those who play to win.

This session will explore fundamentals of how to win government funding, how to shift the dial on policy change, and how to achieve lasting impact in the for-purpose sector.

In this online session, our presenters will give you practical tips on how to:

  • win with government (funding, policy change, legislation) in light of the significant contextual shifts of 2020; and
  • become more competitive so your organisation wins government funding in a fiscally constrained, post-COVID world.

Who should attend?

This webinar is aimed at not-for-profit leaders and leaders of purpose-led organisations, board members, executive teams and managers, and leaders of social enterprises and social businesses.
