Peer Leaders Forums

The Peer Leader Forums have been designed to help you build your personal and professional capacity in a confidential peer environment. They are an affordable development opportunity for leaders of small organisations and were created to be an ongoing investment in your practice. The forums will enable you to become more effective and more sustainable and to move towards best practice. The Peer Leaders have spoken about the benefits of the supportive networks they have built and the new confidence and connection to the industry they now feel.

I’ve found it very valuable – the CEO of a NFP has no peers in the organisation and it is so valuable to be part of a community of peers.

Bi-monthly, senior leaders meet to discuss key issues that affect their role: sharing, collaborating, and learning in a confidential environment. Knowing it can be hard to find the time, the two-hour sessions held in a CBD-fringe location are designed to enhance  reflection on practice making a real difference in performance.

I have found this group to be really helpful in being able to share common concerns and issues since taking over the CEO role. [It] has been really useful in supporting me to do the job.
