events and workshopsAt CBB, we run a variety of information sessions and workshops for the not for profit sector that provide an opportunity to up-skill in areas of interest, network with industry leaders and stay up-to-date with key topics.

Our two key event series are Community ExecNet (a breakfast series for not for profit executives and Board members held throughout Australia) and HR ExecNet (networking and information sharing events for not for profit HR managers and those responsible for HR – currently held in Adelaide only). Read more here about our Community ExecNet events.

Community ExecNet (Vic) – Just do it! How to make marketing happen for your NFP


About the event

It’s been a ‘usual suspect’ on many an NFP strategic plan for years, but in 2017 it’s our prediction it will become ‘most wanted’. It is marketing, and although it has no trouble making its way onto ‘to do’ lists, it has a harder time moving up to number one …

With changing markets and increased competition, organisations that leave marketing on the to do list will be left behind in the scramble to attract service users, build brand awareness and diversify income streams.

Boards are demanding action and executives are juggling multiple priorities. So just how does an NFP make marketing happen? Register today to find out how to boost your brand!

Who should attend?

  • NFP executives and employees responsible for marketing (especially if marketing isn’t a core skill)
  • Anyone working in a not for profit who may be experiencing ‘marketing paralysis’ and needs inspiration to get started!

Date: Tuesday 20 June 2017
Time: 7:30 am – 9:30 am
Venue: DoubleTree by Hilton, 270 Flinders Street, Melbourne
