The Strong Community Symposium will be kicking off with a bang – or more accurately – with two fantastic speakers that will deliver inspiring case studies and practical insights for non-profits & social enterprises🌟
Mark Bruce-Miller, General Manager of Whenua Iti Outdoors, starts us off with an “honest case-study in the importance of diversification, nimbleness, open-mindedness and determination – with a whole heap of failed ideas along the way”.
After a break, Geoff Caradus, Head of Pitt&Moore’s Commercial team, will dive into to practical advice for non-profits, discussing changes to the Incorporated Societies Act and what these mean for your organisation.
