Social Impact & Not For Profit Consulting
Those leading and working in organisations in the area of ‘for purpose’ know that the sector has been rapidly transforming. Organisations are being confronted with new ways of engaging and collaborating, being disrupted by technology, and shifting funding models, never-mind this all occurring alongside unprecedented scrutiny and increased competition. We take a creative needs and value based approach to help not-for-profits, social enterprises, and community groups design and develop strategies, relevant business models, and sustainable collaborations and partnerships. We can also help you understand the practical and simple ways to execute and deliver, and support you with capability and capacity where and when its needed.
“…never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has…” ~Margaret Mead
The amazing passion that ‘for purpose’ organisations have for their mission is truly inspiring. Their sincere intentions on making real and lasting change in the world are what attracts both the members of their team, and their supporters. To make that change sustainable, passion and intention must also be backed by capability. From organisational, leadership, and market strategies to unlocking value and delivery capacity, we’ve worked with driven organisations to help them realise their missions faster and with more impact.
The Corporate Partnerships landscape is undergoing one of the most rapid and fundamental changes occurring in any area of business and organisational relationships. A seismic shift in the perceptions and expectations of how corporate partnerships are approached and what they will deliver for all parties is underway. We’re working with NFP (Not-For-Profit), social impact, and ‘for purpose’ organisations to assist them in unlocking their full value as a partner, finding the right fit with a corporate partner, developing truly mutually beneficial relationships, and building the capabilities to deliver on the partnership objectives. Visit our Corporate Partnerships area to learn a bit more about how we can help you in your mission to partner for purpose.
Research & Analysis For Leaders
One of the most challenging aspects of leading organisations in the NFP or Social Impact space is staying aware of the evolving social, economic, political, technology, and environmental landscapes. With the ‘for purpose’ sector becoming more competitive, it is essential that leaders have the right information at their fingertips to make informed decisions on the future of their mission. Vievero works with leaders to understand their needs for information and analysis to provide them timely and critical insights in the most relevant way.
Execution & Delivery
Where we see a lot of organisations come unstuck in their mission is in the actual execution and delivery of the plans they’ve invested so much in. From the basics of project management and communications, to much more encompassing disciplines like organisational strategy and measurement, it’s getting the balance of using best practice methods, while keeping teams agile and motivated, that can make the difference in an initiatives outcomes. Drawing on our decades of experience in a wide array of organisational environments, from startups to global corporations, we can offer advice on an approach that gets that balance right for your particular initiative.
The communities, supporters, audiences, decision makers, and influencers impacted by the objectives of an NFP are many and varied. A key element to the success of any initiative is engaging the right people in the right way at the right time. Understanding their wants and needs, and where an organisation can have the most impact is perhaps the most important ingredient in delivering on a project’s potential. We help our clients get a grasp on their stakeholders and the best way to engage and understand them.
Communications & Storytelling
Letting people know what you’ve done and where you’re heading next is often the most overlooked pocket of value for a not-for-profit, or social impact initiatives. Both internally, helping leaders communicate their mission strategy, and externally, telling your community about the valuable work you’re doing, the creative process and value it offers is enormous.
