Unleash Your Potential with The Master Program in Social Sector

This program is the culmination of over 25 years of experience working with the social sector and draws from the library of over 500 strategic projects Spark Strategy has delivered.

Practicing CEO’s have been involved in the course construction and are part of each module’s delivery through in-person guest lecturing and video resources so you can enhance the theory with practical lessons and tips.

Join us for our intensive retreat, facilitated in the Mornington Peninsula of Melbourne, covering Course 1 of the Mastery in Social Sector Strategy.

Date: 17-20 November

Want to know more?

To your right is a small form. This form tells us a little bit about you.

We are trying to curate each cohort to maximise your learning experience. Telling us a little about you and what you want to achieve helps us match you to other learners and optimise the peer-to-peer experience.

We can also find an information session or a resource that might just be interesting or helpful to you right away.

We have found each enquiry to be different. Some are self-funded learners: some want to bring their entire executive team. Some will be on a philanthropic scholarship and other funded by our own sector capability fund.

Every journey to impact is different. Complete the form and we can help you find the right path and its cost.

There is only upside here.

Continue your journey in sparking the journey we all want – we would love to see you in one of our upcoming Course 1 intakes.
