Big Chat with
Helen Merrick

Big chats with some of the greatest minds in the sector.

This year as part of our FIA conference partnership with Fundraising Institute of Australia, we’ve created Big Chat: Conversations with Purpose as a way to get to know FIA speakers and other leaders in the sector through a more informal lens.

Big Chat aims to inspire new and existing members of the for-purpose community and see themselves as the future achievers and leaders of social change.
