Your organisation is probably both remarkable and complicated. Beautiful and challenging. To change the world is courageous but often messy work.
As a leader it’s a challenge to remain optimistic and passionate. It seems you need an ever-growing range of skills to get the job done. This is where we can help.
At LEAD Centre for Not for Profit Governance & Leadership, we get the complexity of leadership, whether it’s for a charity, community group or not for profit organisation. We get our sector and we get you.
You are people-powered and values-driven – and so are we.
Skills training, leadership coaching, governance/board training, facilitation, strategic planning, and fundraising support are just a few of the ways we can work with you to lead and create change.
You can be sure our work together will be relevant to your organisation, practical, and rooted in our team’s extensive expertise and knowledge of the not for profit sector. It will be transformative, giving you the ongoing skills, knowledge and confidence to lead and create change.
