Spark Strategy
Building Sustainable Business Models for the NFP Sector
Sustainable funding is today’s holy grail for not-for-profits, and it’s proving to be just as elusive. With the tightening of government purse strings, extreme policy shifts and increased competition, not-for-profits can no longer rely on traditional models to survive, they have to think differently about creating social value. This practical session will explore elements of the business model, and how these can serve as levers for survival and scale.

Innovation and agility when you're an early stage startup is part of your competitive advantage, but how do you maintain that edge and continue to have the capacity for disruption as you scale and grow? Amazon is now over 20 years old, has a market cap of over $500B US, but prides itself on innovation still being core to its cultural DNA. This culture of building, experimenting and thinking big has been responsible for innovations like Kindle e-readers, the Alexa voice service, and the world leading cloud computing platform Amazon Web Services.

What it takes to make impact: the hidden commitments 
This session is for curious and open-minded people who want to become masterful in their craft of designing meaningful alternate realities for humanity.

The session empowers people to maximise the impact of their work by unveiling a key awareness that’s required to ensure this level of impact can be manifested in the world.

We’re looking at six key ‘hidden commitments’.

Each time we take a stand for something, hidden commitments are included.

Our awareness of these hidden commitments changes everything—it affects your ability to gather new perspectives and insights and to pivot, to see possibilities, to ensure your design works within its context, and to ultimately create innovative solutions that positively impact people and the planet.

So, what are these six hidden commitments? When are we making them? And how do we step into them with awareness and power?

Join us to find out.
