Principal Consultant for Community Business Australia

Better Boards is pleased to present "How to Get Your Alliances Off the Ground" in partnership with Patrick Herd, Principal Consultant for Community Business Australia.

Adapting to deregulation of markets for government funded service delivery is one of the greatest challenges for Not-for-Profit (NfP) providers at present.

The shift to consumer driven markets combined with the funding squeeze being felt in all parts of the sector has many Boards and leadership teams questioning the future viabilities of their organisations.

Innovation solutions to these challenges often requires funding and resources that are beyond most NFPs. Some organisations are discovering that the answer lies in what NFPs have in the past found a natural fit – working and collaborating together.

Join Patrick Herd as he unpacks the process of working collaboratively, the benefits and pitfalls of forming alliances using case studies and practical examples.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • collaboration processes
  • benefits of alliances
  • pitfalls of forming alliances
  • practical examples from real-life alliance case studies
