"Twice Leeton Connect had the opportunity to host “EmPOWER Your Mission” workshops here in Leeton NSW for our local organisations and charities. The first one was so popular we had to organise a second one! Presenter Scott Lockie did a fantastic job presenting the material using humour, great training materials, powerful online resources, rich multimedia components and real-life examples that captivated the audience. Everyone gained valuable tips and learned about the latest digital research, insights, trends, free resources and tools to support their individual organisations. As well we were introduced to an array of innovative marketing and fundraising strategies. Thank you Scott for bringing your workshop to country NSW."

Ron Arel, Coordinator, Leeton Connect (Leeton, NSW)

"The NFP State of the Nation seminar provides a very thorough training of the whole area of charity management and fundraising. An excellent and illuminating day. Thanks very much. Much appreciated for the quality of information that you shared at the event. I certainly learned a lot of new information and I’ll be sharing what I learned and recommendations with our organisation." James Burgin, Mindd Foundation (Sydney, NSW)

"It is one of the most instructive and revealing programmes I have been at and enjoyed it immensely. Couldn't have been better. Excellent communication skills." Gamani Goonetilleka, Chairperson, Amawatura Buddhist Centre (Sydney, NSW)

“Well worth the investment to get up-to-date information that can be immediately put into action. Thank you.” Angela Gordon, Fundraising and Marketing Manager, Trees for Life (Adelaide, SA)

“A fantastic tool for participants in the NFP sector. Concise, relevant and a depth of material to put into practice within your own operations. Highly recommended to both novices and seasoned professionals.” Steve Gregory, CEO, Black Bull Performance Group (Canberra, ACT)

“As someone who works extensively in the not for profit sector, which I prefer to call the “social profit sector”, I found out just how much I did not know, especially about the rapidly changing operating environment Charities in New Zealand and Australia now face. The information and ideas I have gained from attending will be invaluable for my client base. This was one of the most beneficial workshops I have ever attended and was great value to boot.” Chris Lynch, Director, Lynch and Associates (Auckland, NZ)

"The session provided valuable insight and examples of simple tools and techniques that will enable us as a charity to increase our footprint and make better use of our resources and engage with our members and donors." Alex Dick, Hon. State Treasurer, RSL (Tasmania Branch) Inc. (Hobart, TAS) 


"A well planned, professional workshop with informative supporting data." Simon Wise, Market Development Manager, Colony 47 (Hobart, TAS)
