Description

Don't kick an impacted community down with your goodwill...

Presented by Renae Hanvin


  • Learn how to support Australian communities when disaster strikes

  • Be ready for the up-coming disaster season

  • Invest your goodwill for greater impact


The Australian community has been faced with some tough challenges over the last five years – from bushfires, floods, drought and cyclones to other man-made disasters and significant homegrown tragedies.

Unfortunately, with climate change and the very fact that we are living differently, disasters - of all natures - aren’t going away anytime soon. It’s no longer a question of if your business will be impacted, but when.

In light of this, one of the biggest challenges businesses face in these times is wanting to ‘give’, but not understanding the needs of those affected and not being prepared to assist them quickly. In order to feel like they’re doing the right thing, businesses often find themselves ‘throwing money at the problem or a charity’, without doing the proper planning and evidence to ensure the funds actually make a difference.

Business leaders must ask the question – are our actions helping or hindering?

Regardless of having a plan before a disaster strikes, you should at least know what not to do when you want to help.

Discussion topics:

  • Disaster impacts to Australian communities
  • Shared responsibility
  • Shared value
  • Disaster Philanthropy v Disaster Relief
  • Just because you 'could' does it mean you 'should'
  • The forgotten stakeholders
  • Case studies of global best practices
  • Case studies of disaster goodwill gone wrong
  • Benefits of being there in good times and bad
  • Top 5 considerations for your disaster philanthropy plan
