    Association Networking & Lunch

    We invite you to take a couple of hours out of your day to have lunch and connect with others in the industry to discuss high-level topics of fundamental importance, develop new relationships and gain critical information.

    This networking lunch will allow you to network with other CEOs and senior management professionals from charities, associations and other non-profit organisations.

    There are ample opportunities for you to discuss issues, share ideas, exchange experiences and network with your peers during the day.

    The Topic
    Thriving Cultures: Understand, Transform and Harness an awe-inspiring culture

    Our people are busier than ever, under a great deal of stress and displaying record low engagement rates.

    Record high quit rates have us all focusing on enhancing attraction strategies and meeting the diverse and increasing demands of candidates, at the expense of much needed attention, commitment, and investment in our existing people.

    We need to do a better job at understanding the needs of our people who are with us RIGHT NOW and be open to transforming our people, job-design and organisational approaches, in order to harness an awe-inspiring culture that will have new people knocking down your door and your existing people, never wanting to leave.

    Nina Mapson Bone, Managing Director of Beaumont People, a 2022 Award Winning ‘Best Places To Work’ and ‘Great Places To Work Certified’ organisation, will share with you:

    • The four factors of Meaningful Work and why this is critical to whether your people STAY or LEAVE
    • The importance of individual, job and organisational factors and how these can transform your retention strategies
    • Practical tools and strategies to harness a thriving culture and the many benefits that come with a people-first approach.


    Meet our Speaker

    Elevating your Member Experience with Data-Driven Insights

    Do you remember the last time you were surprised and delighted by an experience with a retail shop or website?  Feels pretty good doesn’t it.  Chances are there was some data insights behind that interaction.

    What if you could elevate the experience of your own members? To be able to delight them with unforgettable moments?   For example, improved connection to other members, quicker and more relevant access to information, or opportunities to learn anytime, anywhere. 

    Using data-driven insights and AI can help you be invaluable to your members – more than ever before!

    In this session we’ll dive into three steps to accelerate your journey to being a more data-driven association:

    1. Breaking down the data silos and working towards a single source of truth
    2. Building trust and confidence in the integrity of your data
    3. Making informed decisions using data driven and AI insights

    You’ll come away from this session with smart, practical tips and advice that you can use right away to get a step closer to being the data-driven association we all aspire to be!
