New Community of Practice, Tea & Buns – Making the world a better place one morning tea at a time

In March we are launching a new monthly Community of Practice, Tea & Buns with Dr Ruth Knight and guests.

Tea & Buns aims to create an opportunity for those working in nonprofit and social innovation to learn from each other, discuss the latest research and how we might apply research to our work. The webinar is online, free and gives you access to a vibrant network of like-minded people, including researchers at QUT.

Each month we will tackle topical leadership questions. These topics will be guided by the news, and what YOU want to talk about. There is no set agenda, and while we can’t promise to have all the answers, we do promise to provide a safe place to chat where you can tap into the insight, research and experiences of many people in the sector. You’ll also have the opportunity to find out about sector events, news and the big issues facing nonprofits.

Tea & Buns will be held on the last Thursday of each month from 9:00-10:00am AEST so pop the dates in your calendar today or register below to receive the online link! We use Zoom so all you need is to turn up the sound on your computer and grab a cup of tea. A camera and microphone is helpful but not mandatory.

It’s free to attend and you’re welcome to send through your issues and questions any time during the month to Ruth at ruth.knight@qut.edu.au.

Wherever you are in the world, please take the time to come along – you can come as a once off, or every month. You will become part of a network of great thinkers and doers who are working collaboratively to strengthen the philanthropy, nonprofit and social enterprise sector – and you might just find the answers to some of the questions you’ve been pondering on!

To book in, simply email your preferred dates to acpns@qut.edu.au and we will send you a confirmation and webinar link closer to the time. And don’t forget to include any issues and questions you’d like to see discussed.

    Thank you I would like to join in with the webinars each month

  3. Thanks for the great initiative.
    Would love to attend every month but some Thursdays I have competing commitments.
    Will there be recordings available for those of us who can’t make that time?

      sorry Claire, we dont record these sessions. However I have been writing a small blog with some notes after the sessions. Hope that is helpful. Perhaps you can invite a colleague to attend those sessions you cant make it. All are welcome 🙂

    Dear Ruth,
