As important as these processes are, equally as important is having an understanding of the emerging environment for the not-for-profit sector. Afterall, how can you plan for the future if you do not understand what the future might be?

Utilising a PEST framework I will outline key political, economical, social and technological trends, from around the world that impact upon healthcare, aged care and the community sector. Not just trends within the sector but also trends that shape consumer expectations and behaviours, that originate from other sectors, the public sector, retail, hospitality, tourism and private healthcare. Even though small population in a large ocean Australia is no longer isolated from these trends and their impact. Modern communication and open travel brings the impact of them to our shores immediately.

When you understand those factors that impact upon the sector and your organisation, then you are able to minimise risk by planning to either take advantage of them, or minimise their impact.

At the outcome of this presentation you will take away an environmental scan that your board and management team will be able to use immediately to create strategic conversations and to inform your next planning round.

Presenter - John Coxon

I have worked with boards and management teams in the healthcare, aged care and community sectors in Australia since 2002. I have been involved in guiding strategic thinking with boards, being a mentor to CEO's and senior executives, reviewing service delivery processes and overseeing development of support systems and processes. I will present an overview of the emerging factors that impact upon the healthcare sector in Australia. As publisher of the fortnightly joining.the.dots newsletter I am immersed in identifying trends from around the world and from a variety of sectors, that may impact upon service organisations. This knowledge forms the basis of the Join The Dots presentation. In the presentation, I will 'join the dots' as I map the political, economic, social and technological factors that will impact upon future service delivery.

In the event of cancellation of this event any prepaid fees will be refunded. No refund for no show. Registrations may be transferred to another participant.
