Association Masterclass

Takeaways – Strategic Framework, Benchmark Performance & Peer Engagement 

Here’s what association leaders have to say about the Association Masterclass.

Richard Lawrance, CEO, HIMAA – I gained three key outcomes from Omer’s excellent Masterclass (engagement with peers, 6-Step Roadmap to harness disruption and a framework to reflect on my own association) with all three down to Omer’s skill in structuring the workshop, and delivering it so responsively.

Leo Tonitto, CEO, AIM – The inspiring content and participant interaction crystallized my thinking. The 6-Step Roadmap is invaluable to engaging the board and management in conversations around what really matters.

Shona Gawel, GM Membership Services, AIFST – Challenging, inspiring, invigorating; attending Omer’s session has me revisiting not only how I’ve been doing things but delving into why.

Brett Mace, CEO, AIBS – What was very beneficial for us was that we could benchmark the progress of our changes over the past three years against the 6-Step Roadmap to Progress. This provides great encouragement to continue further reforms in pursuit of excellence.

Martin Sinclair, Membership Manager, HRIA – An invaluable framework to address the fundamental challenges, strategies and existential questions facing our organisation in the long term.

James March, CEO, BGWA – A great session with some practical follow-up.

Sandra Cormack, Manager Strategic Development, AHRI – It was an excellent strategic planning workshop with many takeaways and one paradigm-shaking moment for me. A great day, thank you.

Paul Naylor, CEO, Master Plumbers Association of NSW – Omer’s 6-Step Roadmap and governance priorities are essential considerations for the board in setting strategic directions for the success of the organisation.
