Our sector's advisors

VUCA logo

We have partnered with a team of advisors to help elevate the impact of your not for profit. Their collective not for profit prowess and sector expertise will empower your organisation to deliver on its mission and create stronger social outcomes, changing the lives of the people and communities you support.

CBB’s partnership with VUCA Trusted Advisors affords our clients preferential rates and allows CBB to reinvest into our sector through free professional development resources and Community Business Grants. If you’re not already subscribed to our newsletter, you can do so here and be the first to find out about new grants, professional development opportunities, and articles from leading experts on a range of subjects important to our sector.

Our advisors have supported some of the most prominent First Nations leaders in the not for profit sector with governance advice. Every time, our advisors’ key focus is to find the balance between Aboriginal governance and ASIC-style governance, weaving together the organisation’s identity and integrity with regulatory best-practice.

With over 25 years of experience, our advisors will support you to develop or improve governance and Board strategy, policies, frameworks, and organisational review practices. They can also provide training and workshops on matters such as strategic planning, risk management, finance management, and Board skills to ensure the Board and Executive are equipped to tackle any challenges that arise.

VUCA is a unique advisory firm that specialises in supporting the not for profit sector, especially in the areas of disability, aged care, First Nations, health, and community. Every advisor is committed to building the capacity and capability of our sector so they can thrive and achieve their mission; plus, each Director sits on at least one not for profit board, demonstrating their passion for the sector and its sustainability. That’s how the VUCA team know that cookie-cutter consulting approaches won’t work for the diverse organisations and Boards that make our sector so special. With their understanding of the current themes, challenges, and opportunities facing our sector, these advisors provide tailored advice that can lead to real action, ensuring clients have a positive, personalised experience.
