Collective Impact 2014: The Insights

21 APRIL 2014

The Centre for Social Impact (CSI) and Social Leadership Australia (SLA) delivered a sell-out conference called Collective Impact 2014 in Sydney. That's one bit of good news. The better news is that in response to overwhelming demand, we're doing it again in Melbourne in July. Event conveners, Kerry Graham and Liz Skelton, give us the wrap-up on two days of convening, immersion and learning from the Sydney conference.

Farewell to Liz Skelton

25 MARCH 2014

Liz Skelton, Principal Consultant and author

It is with mixed feelings that we announce that Liz Skelton will be leaving Social Leadership Australia at the end of next month. 

Liz has made an enormous contribution to SLA in her eight years with us but her decision to branch out and do something new is in many ways simply upholding what we always encourage others to do—to keep learning and challenging ourselves.
 
Liz began as Program Manager for our flagship Sydney Leadership program in 2005 at a time when Social Leadership Australia was just one program. Her great skills quickly saw her promoted to Senior Manager, Programs.

Liz went on to play a critical role in the development of the centre and its achievements.

She has been central to the development of our methodology and practice at SLA, in the growth of our impact at a systemic level across the business, government and not-for-profit sectors, and in the expansion of our thinking and outreach to new audiences. MORE >
