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 an essential event for your board and leadership team, and is well worth booking as your board’s main development activity this year.
A day of presentations and discussions curated specifically for chief executive officers or their equivalent.
The day will include a short offsite tour component and a strong networking focus with the 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 Adelaide. At each facility, a representative will discuss improvements, and you will hear first-hand about the strategic process, implementation and solutions 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.
Two half-day masterclasses are available this year, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and each run by an expert in a specific area. A great opportunity to focus in-depth on two key topics prior to the conference proceedings. Each Pre-conference Masterclass is ticketed separately, so you may choose to attend either or both.
Complimentary for those delegates attending any of the events on Friday (pre-registration 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!
