Delivering mission in a market based NDIS world

There are significant opportunities, but also areas where the NDIS will change the way many not for profit organisations go about achieving their mission. Indeed the changes are so profound the continued existence of some organisations will be open for debate.

This lunchtime workshop is designed to challenge the thinking of Board and Executive staff about the ways they have always done business.

The workshop will be structured around candid discussions with other industry leaders. It is aimed to assist organisational leaders to consider strategic changes such as consolidating activities, moving into new areas or divesting some activities.
