Kia ora all,
I am pleased (and a bit nervous!) to announce the Seeds Impact Conference which will take place on October 5th with 27 sessions held online across 4 zoom rooms.
Inspired by the conversations on seeds podcast, there will be an amazing lineup of dozens of speakers and panellists who are listed on the website here. Tickets are only $20 for a full day of inspiring discussion that you can dip in and out of – you can find out more and book in here https://seedsconference.nz/
The panels will be on #Degrowth, #impact #measurement, #Māori led #startups, #systems #innovation, #BCorps, the value of the #Arts, supporting #Women #Founders, #governance, importance of #books, #Wayfinding, the #Ocean, #Supply #chains in the Pacific, the role of Kiwi expats – very diverse, as this is naming just a few …
You can help spread the word by sharing the website above in an email newsletter to people you know or forwarding this on to someone else. It is a word of mouth event with no marketing budget so your support is welcome – speaking of which there are 160 supporters listed already on the site and your organisation can join them as well, just let me know if of interest. A LinkedIn post is here for anyone who wants to like/share…it all helps!
Update regarding the Charities Healthcheck. There has been lots of amazing feedback from about 100 of you plus many who joined a zoom call on it – am most grateful. The list of those who have contributed is under the images below – if you should be on the list, let me know! It has been a lot of work to collate all the input… hope to now finalise and make available the final versions by end of this month.
- One key change is there will now be the “top 3” in each category moved to the start of each topic, and also those top 3 will be moved to an “Overview” document so that people can choose to just review that to get the really key principles (so not too overwhelming). Then if they want more, then can dive into one of the other more detailed ones.
- Also at the start of some am putting an overview eg on “what is governance” based on your feedback. I am going to keep editing for a while now and making it look beautiful inside then aiming to release it towards the end of this month.
- The Faith groups one will be released at the Christian Savings conference – encourage those of you from Churches to check it out here. I will be sharing two sessions there including one in the evening on practical governance tips with KP, the CEO of the IOD.
- Now for anyone how meant to feedback but got caught up with other things – if you still email me that is OK, but by next Wednesday 16th please.
Thanks again to so many who have inputted on the guides! Thanks in particular to Kelly Snell at our office – without her couldn’t have done this.
