Your organisation is unique because it's powered by unique people.  And you're driven - driven by passion, values and your mission.  Driven to change the world; to make it better.

But all the uniqueness, passion and values float in a sea of complexity - it often feels creating change is harder to do than it should be.  Achieving our passion for a better and more just world is challenging work.

Collaborating with LEAD you can be confident that our work together will be 100% contextualised to your organisation. Whatever we do together will be realistic and doable "by the people and for the people".  We ensure that our services meet your organisation’s or community’s needs, and that change is sustainable at a local level.

Auckland Regional Migrant Services has been working in the collaboration space since it’s formation 15 years ago. It’s empowering to see the core values and processes, which we have been following, being shared as a learning a tool by the LEAD Team! It goes to show that the LEAD Team understands collaboration from our perspective. I would recommend this course to anyone who is wanting to collaborate, form partnerships or create networks, as it highlights the key aspects of individual organisational needs, as well as the overall partnership goals, risks and outcomes.

With our expertise, you can fast track the process of designing and implementing evaluation processes. We can assist with the whole process or just parts of it. Our methods include interviewing, surveying, focus groups and analysis of data and information. We can compile comprehensive reports to submit to funders to make the link between your intentions and the reality.

As the team space is strengthened, often the work becomes more effective. We come alongside organisations with a huge range of training topics. We offer public courses, all of which can also be delivered bespoke to your organisation’s staff and volunteers, drawing in your unique organisational values and culture.

What I appreciated most about the seminar was the strategic first step it gave us about how to approach your marketing from three different levels. And it was great to have something NFP specific.
