Every year, CMA runs a number of workshops specifically for charitable and non-profit organisations. They are adapted from our popular Getting to Yes: Negotiating deals, resolving disputes course to focus on the specific challenges of negotiating in, and on behalf of, organisations in this sector.
Best of all, they’re FREE! The courses are sponsored by the CMA Foundation, which receives 5% of the revenue from our corporate and government workshops. Most years we’re able to offer 3–4 workshops, accepting up to two enrolments from each charity or NGO.
In 2009, we also ran a Bushfire Relief workshop focusing on Giving Effective Feedback. Offering heavily discounted places for participants from charities and non-profits, we donated all the proceeds to the Victorian bushfire appeals.
These workshops, along with the many smaller things we do to support charitable causes, reflect the PASSION that’s one of our four core values. We’re passionate about what we teach, passionate about making it widely available, and passionate about making a difference in the world.
Watch this space! We’ll post information about each upcoming event as we schedule it. We also maintain a list of organisations that have expressed an interest in attending a course. If you’d like to be on that list, please contact us.

"The direct beneficiaries of CMA’s generosity, Dr Tsingas and Mr Marshall, were very impressed by both the quality of the contents and the high standard of the training provided. In particular, they were impressed with the learning environment created by CMA and staff, and the understanding and attention to detail required to ensure that the training content was relevant to non-government community service organisations…The materials provided for further reference and access to e-learning resources are very much appreciated."
David Sandison, General Manager
