The Association Strategist

As association leaders, we are all faced with market disruption, increasing competition, changing member expectations and uncertainty in government policy.

And yet the demands to achieve success have never been greater, with associations expected to deliver more, with less – and faster. MORE as in Members, Outcomes, Revenue and Engagement.

At The Future of Associations, we work with association boards, executive leaders and nonprofit organisations who want to set the benchmark and create a roadmap to progress, change and influence.

We help elevate thinking, evolve strategy and build innovative future focus to unlock new opportunities for members, outcomes, revenue and engagement.

Strategy and Alignment Expertise:

  • Energise Boards – Align boards with elevated thinking to create and execute future focused strategy.
  • Embolden Leaders – Strengthen strategic capability and rigour to accelerate organisational success.
  • Inspire Staff – Unlock productivity to align staff, culture and resources with strategic objectives.
  • Crisis Management – Solutions to every association threat from reputation damage, member action groups, financial distress, competitive challenges and disaster recovery.


6-Step Roadmap to The Future of Associations:

  • Disruption – Associations must evolve if they are to survive and thrive into the future.
  • Mission – Create and communicate absolute clarity of purpose to engage members.
  • Good Governance – You cannot be a modern association without a contemporary board.
  • External Strategy – A businesslike approach is required to increase income, impact and members.
  • Internal Alignment – Look inward for solutions to your greatest challenges.
  • Future Focus – The future is unwritten, and dependent on the decisions you make today.
