Strategic Growth – ideas to implementation

Examples of this include revenue diversity models, growth agendas, strategic plans, experience at leading organisations through merger processes.

Mat can help you develop strategies and programs to improve your diversity and help your organisation/business ensure that it is accessible and safe for people from LGBTIQ and other groups.
Business and organisations will succeed if all members of our community feel welcome and safe to use your services or purchase your products. From your front door to your social media, there are things you can do to ensure your diversity targets are met and exceeded and not just ticked off in an annual report.
In Mat’s career he has had a clear focus on ensuring that we are able to measure and demonstrate our impact. You need to be able to clearly articulate what the impact of your intervention, program or organisation is to continue to receive funding or grow your profit. Mat has years of experience in setting a culture of outcomes and impact measurement and can help you with the tools to do this.
Management and Leadership structures are often complex and challenging particularly in NFP organisations with multiple funding sources, with multiple contract end dates and a lot of uncertainty. Management structures need to be flexible enough to cope with some shrink and flex, but also able to cope with uncertainty and growth. Often it is not the structure itself that is the problem but the process to implement a new structure, and evaluation of this once it is in place. The other major success factor in these processes are the team. Are your management team skilled and resourced enough to fully integrate the change process to a new structure?
Mat can help you come up with the principles or guiding aspects to successfully developing a structure that is appropriate to your context.

Corporate Social Responsibility
Many private individuals and companies give generously to various charities. Often giving to multiple charities. Giving programs in businesses often come without any real return other than a positive feeling or a tax benefit. How do you know that the funds you have provided are making a difference? How would I know where to find out?
Mat can help you develop a giving strategy and provide expert advice on whether or not a charity you are considering giving to can demonstrate back to you the impact that your funds have or will contribute to. Mat can broker the relationship and ensure that once the funds hit their bank account that you get some kind of return, in feedback, in gratitude or in evidence of having made a difference. Which only helps your business.
