SVA Essentials Series – Advertorial
Monday, 13th October 2003 at 1:10 pm

The SVA Institute is running a unique event in Melbourne next month to bring essential resources for success to Not for Profit organisations.

The second in the Essentials Series 2003 will include one and a half days of expert coaching, workshops, coaching clinics, advice booths and opportunities to network with colleagues.

The Institute and the Essentials Series
Social Ventures Australia (SVA) was founded in May 2002 by a partnership between the AMP Foundation, The Benevolent Society, The Smith Family and Work Ventures.

SVA resources and supports social ventures (that is, groups or organisations seeking to improve society) by providing business mentoring, resources, expertise and funding in collaboration with the commercial, government and social sectors.

The Essentials Series is the signature event of the newly-formed SVA Institute, which has been established as a unique vehicle through which to showcase, build best practice and capture knowledge and learning in the social sector.

The event will feature:
– Leading keynote speakers from the business and the community sectors including Rev Tim Costello, Executive Director of Urban Seed, Graeme Wise, CEO of The Body Shop, Prof. Mark Lyons, from the Centre for Australian Community Organisations, Jane Tewson, CEO of Pilot Light, Michael Traill, CEO of Social Ventures Australia and David Birch from Deakin University’s Centre of Corporate Citizenship.
– Roundtable learning workshops on core organisational issues including scaling and growing, managing volunteers, monitoring outcomes, strategic partnerships and alliances, mentoring;
– Free 30-minute Advice booths by SVA partner corporations on legal, financial, insurance and marketing issues;
– An Essential Good Governance Lunch on the second day featuring guest speaker Neil Waters, Principal Egon Zehnder. (Tickets to the lunch may be purchased separately to the series for $60 per head.)
– A half day ‘coaching clinic’ for ventures on marketing, fundraising and event management, contracts and submissions, performance, staff recruitment and retention, business planning and investments.

Attendance at the series is recommended for:
– Not for Profit leaders;
– Program Managers and Coordinators;
– Business partners and those interested in working with the Not for Profit sector;
– Social Entrepreneurs;
– Government program managers; and
– funders and grant makers.

Jan Owens, the Essentials Series Convenor says the Melbourne event promises to equip you with the tools for success now and into your organisation’s future.

“Brilliant! The workshops were really good. I have used the Pitches and Presentiation Skills coaching clinic every single day,” says Isabelle Ellis, President of The Council of Remote Area Nurses of Australia, an attendee at the Sydney series.

Location and Dates
The Melbourne Dates: November 18 & 19 November
Location: Rydges Hotel, North Melbourne, Victoria 2003

Special registration offer
SVA is also making a special offer to organisations with more than one staff member interested in attending the series. Participants at the Sydney Essentials Series found it beneficial to bring a colleague from their organization with whom to share information and assist in implementing action items. So for the Melbourne event, SVA is offering a 25% discount on the second registration for delegates from the same organisation.

General Registration
$360 per delegate (price inc. Good Governance Lunch)
$270 Second Person

This includes the one and a half day Series, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea and the cocktail party and the Good Governance Lunch on the second day.
