Philanthropy Summit 2019: Two months to go

Wednesday, March 13, 2019   Posted in: Conferences By: Administrator With tags: conferences

The Philanthropy Summit 2019 is only two months away - 15th to 17th May 2019.

The preliminary programme has been released for the Summit. We will frequently update this programme over the coming weeks.

Note: Make sure to book a late flight if you're flying out on Friday - to ensure you catch Dr Jane Goodall's keynote!

Here are some of the exciting sessions to look forward to, and information to help you with logistics for the Summit.

Email the Philanthropy NZ with any questions you might have about the Summit (info[at] - Subject: Questions about the Summit.

The lineup for the Philanthropy Summit

We are excited to announce Sir Stephen Tindall (Founder of The Tindall Foundation) and Jennifer Gill (CEO of Foundation North) as two of our keynote speakers for the Philanthropy Summit 2019: The Future of Trust. Both have had considerable impact in shaping the philanthropic sector in New Zealand over the past decades, and we are excited to hear their stories, insights and predictions.

View the lineup of current keynote speakers and panellists at the 2019 Philanthropy Summit, including the speakers' bios.

View the preliminary programme for the 2019 Philanthropy Summit.

Here are a few highlights...

Pecha Kucha: the many strands of evaluation

Facilitated by Annette Culpan - part of Impact [Friday afternoon].

Concise and fast-paced presentations from a number of evaluation professionals on designing for, and evaluating, impact in philanthropy. Speakers include:

  • Nadine Metzger (Point Associates);
  • Tony O'Connor (Point Associates);
  • Kat Dawnier (Catapult Consulting); and
  • Elizabeth Goodwin (Connect + Co).

Funding for systems change

Presented by Christina Howard (Todd Foundation) and Gael Surgenor (The Southern Institute) - part of The Work We Do [Friday morning].

Systems change is a new way of understanding and taking action to create positive change. Explore what systems change is, why funders are looking to support this, and what it takes to move from being a traditional grant maker to an enabler of systemic change.

Embracing women’s giving to grow impact

Part of Engagement and Relationships [Thursday afternoon].

We need to encourage and embrace women’s giving to tackle the challenges NZ faces. Learn more about how gender and culture shape giving behaviour, and the impact it can have on creating a more equitable New Zealand.

This session will be led by:

  • Dellwyn Stuart (CEO, YWCA and Founder of the Women’s Fund movement in NZ);
  • Jane Sloane (Director of the Women’s Empowerment programme, The Asia Foundation), and guests.

Reinvent how you work: co-create adaptive impact

Led by MJ Kaplan (Kaplan Consulting / Centre for Social Impact New Zealand / Loomio) - part of Impact [Friday afternoon].

This session will focus on how to fundamentally change how you collaborate – whether you're a funder, grantee or network. Learn practices that will lead to employee engagement, team alignment, and rapid improvement. Explore a new approach to meetings (including eliminating many), decisions and feedback.

Keen to host a dine-around?

Looking to connect with other attendees on issues of shared interest? Want to share grantmaking strategies, challenges, and opportunities? Or just get to know others in the philanthropy world over a great meal?

What is a dine-around? They are informal dinners at local restaurants. Dine-arounds may be structured as a simple networking event, or based on a topic, with conversation led by the host(s).

Dinner dine-arounds will take place on Wednesday 15 May from 6.30pm at restaurants around Wellington. Philanthropy New Zealand will promote the dine-arounds, and will make group reservations at suitable venues. Attendees will be required to pay for their own meals.

Contact Yvonne at Philanthropy NZ if you are interested in being a host (yvonne[at] - Subject: Host a dine around.
