Paul presented to the Leadership Victoria C21 Not For Profit Conference on how boards can help their organisations thrive in the face of uncertainty.


The presentation focused on:


Improving anticipation by:

1/ Scanning Deep and Wide

2/ Involving Multiple Perspectives through diverse boards, organisations and supporter networks.

3/ Running processes that involve those diverse perspectives and shining different ways of looking at the future.

4/ Understanding the context rather than just copying an idea from somewhere else and plonking it into your organisation.

Improving the flexibility of strategy by:

1/ Scenario based planning.

2/ Involving multiple possible future in your thinking.

3/ Experimenting and “feeling” your way forward as well as thinking your way forward.

As usual our presentations are designed to be an experience for those that attend and do not contain lots of detail (we hate bullet points on PowerPoint with a passion). If you are interested in an online meeting presentation with an overview to see if the presentation might work for your organisation then contact us and we will contact you to arrange a short version via Go To Meeting

 If you hover your mouse above the bottom section of the presentation on the Right Hand Side after you have clicked on the play arrow it will give you the option for change to a full screen where you can clearly see all the detail.
