Mission Accepted – How to Find Your Focus and Increase Your Impact
Wednesday, 26th April 2017 at 3:43 pm
Challenging not-for-profit leaders to regain “Mission Control” will be just one of the thought pieces presented at the 2017 AuSAE Conference and Exhibition (ACE) on 11 to 12 May in Sydney.
Keynote speaker, Liana Downey – strategy advisor and author of Mission Control: How Nonprofits and Governments Can Focus, Achieve More and Change the World – will provide insights into why some non-for-profit leaders succeed while others struggle to point to their impact.
To continue the theme of challenging the status quo, the conference is honoured to welcome keynotes from three of Australia’s leading business authorities including 2016 AOC Chef de Mission Kitty Chiller, founding director of RedBalloon and Redii.com Naomi Simson, and co-founder and CMO of Sendle.com Craig Davis. The program will also feature over 25 sector leaders who will share their insights and knowledge on current challenges and opportunities faced by association professionals today.
Chief executive officer of AuSAE Brendon Ward says that the ACE includes a diverse range of professional speakers and is the most exciting yet, addressing a broad range of issues faced by the not-for-profit sector and businesses today.
“One of the underlying themes throughout the program is that of leadership and culture management in associations across Australia. New ‘people-first’ management strategies are visible throughout the world’s biggest businesses today, and we’re eager to share what this means for associations and not-for-profits,” Ward said.
“As a not-for-profit organisation representing other not for profits, AuSAE has a unique understanding of the opportunities and challenges NFP professionals face and how this knowledge could strengthen the wider industry,” Ward said.
ACE is the association sector showcase event of the year. It allows professionals to step away from the industry issues they navigate every day and think about the performance of their own organisation to support them to succeed in their current role or to move onto the next big thing.
Australasian Society of Association Executives (AuSAE), the leading association for current and future association leaders in Australia, represents more than 12,000 professionals and is focused on fostering a strong and robust association and not-for-profit sector in Australia. AuSAE provides a hub for individuals to access professional development, support and networking opportunities.
ACE 2017 takes place on 11 to 12 May in Sydney. The conference will be one of the premier opportunities to learn from and connect with industry leaders. Visit http://www.ausae.org.au/ace/program to view the full program and learn about the keynote speakers.
