At CB Canberra we tackle the big questions facing arts fundraisers today.

How does one prospect, cultivate and retain a corporate sponsor? How can a crisis be transformed into an opportunity? What are the steps involved in designing, adopting and sticking to an effective long-term fundraising strategy that is both stable and reactive? How can we best engage with our boards and committees?

Culture Business will focus on corporate sponsorship, philanthropy, development staffing models and new business models for revenue generation to provide fundraisers with the tools to take their fundraising to the next level.
