Doing More with Less: Making Progress in a Time of Economic Downturn

Swinburne University’s Asia-Pacific Centre for Philanthropy and Social Investment & DVA Navion are holding a workshop in Melbourne on 28 April.

Doing More with Less: Making Progress in a Time of Economic Downturn, organised in association with the City of Boroondara and the Centre for Social Impact will feature guest speakers:

• Professor Peter Shergold (Chief Executive, Centre for Social Impact);

• John McLeod (Director of Philanthropy, Goldman Sachs JBWere);

• Cath Smith (Chief Executive Officer, Victorian Council of Social Services);

• Vanessa Meachen (Research and Training Manager, Philanthropy Australia). 

Keynote presentations and interactive panel discussions will equip not-for-profit Board members, CEOs and Senior Executives with skills to effectively deal with questions related to the impacts of the economic downturn on the not-for-profit sector, how organisations can formulate effective responses, the characteristics of organisations which flourish in times of hardship, and what types of activities are likely to be funded under such conditions.
