It is a valuable opportunity for those responsible for the governance of their organisation to make connections, share ideas and gather information with other board members, chief executive officers and senior managers from not-for-profit organisations.
It is beneficial for organisations to send their entire board and chief executive officer together.
The heart of the Better Boards Conference runs over the Saturday and Sunday with fully catered breaks and a mix of concurrent workshops and plenary presentations. Hundreds of board members and CEOs attend the Main Conference forming one of the largest regular gatherings of leaders from not-for-profit organisations in Australasia, and creating an environment ripe for making connections, the sharing of ideas and gathering of information with peers.
It is a great value exercise for your board and leadership team, and is well worth booking as your board’s main development activity this year.
This is a day of presentations and discussions that is curated specifically for chief executive officers or their equivalent.
The day will have a strong networking focus and will aim to create quality opportunities for chief executive officers to discuss issues, ideas and solutions together.
CEO’s Day is a brilliant networking and information gathering opportunity for CEOs of not-for-profit organisations. Numbers are limited to keep the day intimate and allow for quality networking between attendees.
A unique opportunity for you to get out and about with your ‘board member’ hat on, and hear ideas, innovations, strategies and experiences with a range of other directors. The Board Innovation Tour will take delegates on an excursion to diverse organisations around Brisbane. At each facility, a representative will discuss improvements, and you will hear first-hand about the strategic process, implementation and solutions to hurdles from the CEO and Chair.
Tour delegates will be able to meet and chat with directors and peers with a wide range of experience from various industries and sectors, in a relaxed setting over a seated lunch.
A great opportunity to see how others have done it and meet leaders from the not-for-profit world.
A one-day event for social entrepreneurs who want to create positive impact by starting or growing their own not-for-profit organisation, social enterprise or business for good.
Sprout Summit is convened by Better Boards Australasia and aims to connect and equip social entrepreneurs and change-makers with the practical tools, processes and contacts to drive successful change and create positive impact in society.

Complimentary for those delegates attending any of the events on Friday (pre-registering is a must), the Leadership Networking Drinks provide a great opportunity to continue conversations and follow up introductions made throughout the day. Drinks and canapés will be provided.
The Gala Dinner is the social highlight of the Better Boards Conference and is a great chance to unwind after a day of information gathering. Enjoy a meal with your board, meet others and be entertained!
