Andrew brings a wealth of evidence and reality to planning and discussion which helps make issues ‘real’ for participants.

Topic 1
The contemporary dimensions of modern non-profit leadership.
Topic 1 Description
Non-profits are working harder than ever to define and deliver their value proposition within increasingly complicated environments. In these uncertain times all non-profit leaders must understand and adopt fresh approaches to modern leadership. Andrew explores and explains how to identify, embrace, and capitalize on the characteristics of contemporary leadership to realize long-term impacts.
Topic 2
The bottleneck of human thought: Non-profits and the attention economy
Topic 2 Description
When he defined the concept of "attention economics" in 1971, Nobel Laureate Herbert A. Simon wrote that ".a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention...". 50 vears later, and in a data-rich world, the overwhelming wealth of information available to us means a dearth of something else, i.e. the scarcity of whatever it is that information consumes - our attention. In this session, Andrew defines the concept and leads an exploration on how non-profit
leadership teams need to understand, respond to, and flourish within the attention economy.
Topic 3
The professional privilege of generative governance
Topic 3 Description
Non-profit governance is often viewed as a burden, interpreted as somewhat of a poisoned chalice, with the kudos of a board position offset by the challenges of decision-making and the weight of responsibility for the success (or otherwise) of an organisation. But it is an exciting time to lead a non-profit and governance represents one of the most exciting components of non-profit leadership. Engaging in creative discussion, adding specialist insights, contributing professional expertise, and supporting the long-term sustainability of the organisation is not a burden and Andrew explains how it can and should be welcomed as a professional privilege, one that people should be clambering to enjoy.
