Funding for Impact Masterclass

The Social Impact Hub, together with strategic partner Philanthropy Australia, invites philanthropists and not-for-profits to a special masterclass with Dan Pallotta!

The masterclass will begin with a keynote address with renowned charity disruptor Dan Pallotta, whose TED talk Uncharitable: The Way We Think About Charity is Dead Wrong has been viewed over 4.3 million times. Dan challenges us to change the way we think about changing the world.

Dan’s talk will be followed by a Q&A where he will directly address greatest challenges facing attendees at the masterclass. After this, a panel of funders and NFPs who are already carrying out best practice in funding for impact will share their experiences and learnings.

Finally, NFPs and philanthropists will be invited to trial out the new tools that have been developed as part of the Funding for Impact project.

The masterclass also serves as the official launch for the Funding for Impact project. As part of the launch the Social Impact Hub will outline the pillars of the project and a new online hub for resources on the subject, including tools for funders and NFPs.

The focus on minimising administration costs is constraining the ability of many not-for-profits to innovate, take risks and scale their impact. The Funding for Impact project provides tools and advocacy to shift the way we think about funding and reporting, to reward charities for their big goals and their big accomplishments instead of equating frugality with morality

Well-Being In Business (Melbourne)

Well-Being In Business is a full day immersive experience facilitated by Konda Mason (USA), Founder & CEO Impact Hub Oakland, and Well-Being In Business Lab, and is designed to invite you to explore and begin the shifts within yourself and your organisation that are required to move from ‘me’ to ‘we’.  The immersion guides participants in augmenting well-being – both personally, and organisationally.

What does it take to be truly well?  Find out and take well-being – yours and your business’s – to the next level.

 “This is about moving beyond maximising ‘me’ and toward business that maximises well-being for all”

In a world of high intensity, high performance, hyper connection, rapid change, and Trumpism, it is easy to feel besieged in the relentless pace. Leaders are increasingly recognising the important benefits of mindfulness, exercise, sleep and play, on both the body and the brain. In this unique-to-Australia experience, Konda Mason takes well-being to the next level, drawing on the work of the Well-Being In Business Lab at UC Berkley’s Greater Good Science Centre.

This immersion goes beyond mindfulness, mental and emotional health, leaping towards a wholistic framework of well-being essential to thriving humans and thriving businesses.
