Tara Anderson & Andrew Curtis

(Dragonfly Collective @TheDragonflyC ) 

Post Trump & Brexit: the role of Collective Impact & communications in the third sector & beyond 

Tara Anderson’s background is in strategic planning, marketing, public relations, communications and fundraising at executive level in the not-for-profit and social enterprise sector in Australia and the UK. She is the Co-Founder and Director of The Dragonfly Collective. Her passion and career focus is reducing inequality and poverty, particularly through collaborative approaches.

There has been a wave of recent interest in approaches to cross-sector collaboration that deliver systemic social impact. ‘Collective impact’ is one such methodology that has been widely adopted in the USA and is currently emerging in the UK. Tara’s contribution will explore the field of collective impact and the barriers and enablers to delivering it in the UK context, based on research completed for her Masters in Social Innovation dissertation.

Andrew Curtis has supported some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged communities in Australia and the UK through executive leadership, Board membership, academic research and lecturing, project design and hands-on service delivery. An original member of the Social Entrepreneurs Network in Australia Andrew has consulted to both government and a range of social enterprises – from the very large to the very small. Andrew has a PhD in hermeneutics and an MBA – combining critical thinking with business models and practice.
