Organisational Building Tools: SVA Workshops - Advertorial
16 May 2008 at 3:47 pm
Many Not for Profit organisations are hampered by lean budgets, large work loads and short timeframes and finding time and budget for staff education can be neglected when other seemingly more pressing issues demand attention.
However, Not for Profit leaders know they cannot ignore their own and their staff’s ongoing training if they want to build robust and sustainable organisations.
Social Ventures Australia (SVA) is an independent Not for Profit organisation providing services to help strengthen the NFP sector. SVA workshops are for NFP leaders and managers. They’re short, sharp and focused to make sure the time executives spend out of the office makes time in the office easier and more effective.
SVA workshops build business skills by providing executives with best practice tools and management know-how. Workshops are kept small so that every participant can work through their business challenges in the workshop and get real time feedback on their issues. SVA’s experienced facilitators make sure participants walk out the door with new and applicable skills and knowledge, as well as wider circle of peer relationships.
There are five workshop topics in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth in 2008.
