Host one of our courses and invite members from your organisation to cover your costs. This could also help to align your organisational goals with your members. 

This model assumes a ‘organisation’ would organise the venue and catering and share the costs amongst the participants. The host would act as the client and pay our invoice. We minimise your risk by not committing unless you have the numbers required. We would be happy to help with marketing. 

For example - allow a budget of $20,000 for our Place Creation two day course, venue, catering and equipment. You charge 30 participants $1,000 to attend (the amount is up to you) with the following benefits:

  • a saving of $750 (our Place Immersion is $1,750 per person);
  • shared learning within your membership;
  • opportunity to network; and
  • improves viability of course - particularly relevant for regional areas.

This enables your organisation to generate $10,000 to cover your admin costs and further support your members.. 

”Andrew spoke at our recent Placemaking conference , he was easy to work with and knew his subject well."
