Webinar: What works? Innovation for community groups, charity & not for profit organisations

August 23, 2016 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 pm AEST


Dr Lewe AtkinsonPresenter: Dr Lewis Atkinson
Organisation: Haines Centre Australia for Strategic Management

Lewe has spent the past 20 years helping non-profit, community and government leaders to develop better services and lower costs by thinking, planning and acting more strategically.


He has 30 years’ experience in knowledge production and transfer in both commercial and public-good innovation pathways to market. Lewis’s solid technical and financial grounding, combined with a strong creative side, enables him to see patterns, pathways, and solutions that others often miss. He works with clients all over Australia facilitating and consulting in strategic planning & management, innovation, cross-boundary collaboration and research leadership development.


The traditional model of social and community benefits delivered by government, community groups, charities and the not-for-profit sector, with some corporate philanthropy around the edges, has been slowing dying for some years now.

Financial sustainability and/or independence is a goal that many of these organisations are now striving for by trying anything that will help to diversify their sources of income. Social enterprise and innovation are frequently touted as the means to generate sufficient funds to address social needs that are increasingly complex to fix.

This webinar will explore the question of “what works?”
