Patrick will be co presenting with Joanne O’Brien on Adapting your Game through Collaboration – The success of the NIACC Alliance

Adapting to the game of deregulation of markets for government funded service delivery is one of the greatest challenges NFPs are confronting. The shift to consumer driven markets combined with the funding reductions have many Boards of smaller regional providers questioning the future viability of their organisations.

Some of these organisations are discovering that the answer lies in what NFPs have in the past found to be a natural fit – working and collaborating together.

This workshop will present a case study of a group of organisations in rural NSW who have taken collaboration to a new level – forming a new company which will be the lynchpin for them to achieve their objectives and continue to serve the communities that rely on them.

Wednesday: Masterclass Adapting your game through collaboration 9:00-12:30
