Each will share their perspectives and discuss resources that they are working on or conferences coming up. The purpose of the calls is to hear from a variety of people and learn more from people we might not otherwise connect with.
One ask is simple – is there someone you know of who might like to receive these updates? More than 60 people have joined the email list in the last 2 weeks with more than 650 of you receiving the emails, and want to continue to grow this community focussed on impact.
Previous calls and videos of them are all here – quite a collection of stories and materials now https://www.parryfield.com/aotearoa-impact-sector-updates/
A few other things:
- The link for the Impact Lab survey is here: https://form.typeform.com/to/KOkKoBQ3 Note that as a token of their gratitude, and to thank you for your time, they will donate a koha to your organisation. To better understand the charitable sector’s needs, and to discover how they can help to build its capacity, ImpactLab are conducting research to learn how charitable organisations track and measure their success. If you’ve got a moment, they’d appreciate your help with answering a few questions.
- Nick Cowie has pass on a link to the introduction page on the Home of Brands website and the attached description too. He said here’s how the Home of Brands Conscious Consumer Programme works: Every time your supporters are buying something through the Home of Brands Conscious Consumer Programme, 2% of the invoiced purchase is rebated back in the form of a donation payment from us to you. You can reach him at email@example.com
- The IOD Leadership Conference is all online this year and coming up in early May, https://iodconference2022.co.nz/ I am looking forward to sharing at it about stakeholder vs shareholder governance on a panel.
