NFP wshopimageManaging a not-for-profit (or for purpose) entity is not what it used to be. The level of competition has increased 10-fold and the amount of money available for supporting your activities has decreased by an even bigger number. Throw on top of this all the added expectations of corporate governance, best practice, competing for great staff and the high burn out rates and you wonder why you do it.

That’s easy – you’re passionate about the cause, but is that enough to make you sustainable? Times are “a-changing”, and this sector has many opportunities and challenges not affecting other sectors.

When:           Tuesdays: 12 February, 12 March, 9 April, 14 May, 11 June, 23 July 

Where:          Lighthouse - Unit 6/65 Tennant Street, Fyshwick ACT

Cost:             $55.00 (+GST) per person, per workshop, $150.00 (+GST) for all 6 workshops


Tradie Banner2cbnThe biggest asset in a tradie’s life (besides their toolbox), is their spouse, partner or family member who helps with the admin side of the business so that they can concentrate on what they do best.

Like many family businesses, the partner is drawn into the business when things start to get busy. Unfortunately, partners and family members don’t always get the recognition they deserve. Frequently thrown in the deep-end, they face a steep learning curve as they get their heads around insurance, bookkeeping, payroll, tax, software systems and marketing.

ManagingWeb BannercbnOnce you have a website, the next step is learning how to manage it. Managing a website is more than just updating content; it’s being able to manage both the content and some basic technical tasks. This can save you both time and money and will give you the flexibility to accommodate growth and changing requirements.

The content covered does not require any programming or technical knowledge and is applicable to websites developed in WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal or any other built-in Content Management System (CMS).
