For those looking for a career pivot or seeking further engagement from their work, this monthly event series is designed to help participants carve out their unique path to engaging in work with a purpose.


    In these insightful and interactive lunchtime sessions, participants will be introduced to the Personal Impact Framework, which provides an actionable pathway to engage in and contribute to the for-purpose sector.


    In this workshop you will also hear insights collected over the past five years by the People for Purpose team, on the challenges and opportunities that we see for the 'for-purpose' space moving forward, based on hundreds of hours of conversations with leaders in the sector.


    These workshops aim to provide participants with:

    • a solid understanding of the Australian for-purpose sector
    • clarity around your own personal purpose
    • a clearly defined roadmap for taking action
    • resources to initiate steps to engagement
    • access to others who have made the transition.



    This stimulating and high impact workshop aims to help corporate executives wanting to engage in a leadership capacity as a non-Executive Director on a for-purpose board or as a skilled volunteer/mentor.

    These sessions provide you with the opportunity for personal reflection and peer dialogue, and a better understanding of the process for securing a leadership role in the sector.


    Hear from a panel of sector experts including non-executive directors and board advisers, sharing diverse and powerful insights from their experiences as leaders/board directors.


    These workshops aim to provide participants with:

    • An understanding of the different ways in which they can contribute, from skilled volunteering to non-executive directorship positions
    • Information, due diligence checklists, connections and support to be able to implement their personal strategies and get started on their journey
    • Tools and support to help clarify and shape a personal ‘social impact’ plan which aligns individual passions, skill and time availability with the needs and realities of sector board roles

    • An understanding of the responsibilities of Board members, and critical trends in innovation and sustainability for mission-driven organisations.



    "The Head and Heart workshop was fantastic. It was inspiring and informative and it has given me immense food for thought. I was very motivated by Rachael’s story and her passion for the sector. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to others."

    "People for Purpose helped me make the successful transition from the corporate world to the for- purpose sector after 25 years at Qantas. The advice I was given was valuable and simple and I am loving my new executive role with the Royal Institute for the Deaf and Blind. Thank you People for Purpose."
