#ThinkGood2020 – Towards a New Horizon

The events of 2020 have irrevocably changed the way the world does business and if non-profits are to survive and thrive, they need to navigate this new reality.

To help you prepare, #ThinkGood2020 has gone virtual for the first time! Bringing you a day-long online seminar, offering 15 presentations that will be hosted by South African experts in their fields and packed with invaluable information, tips and trends. 

You can choose to attend 1 of 5 presentations offered in each of 3 sessions and it promises to be our best yet! From the latest in social media trends to fundraising post-Covid-19, financial management, IT, marketing, governance etc.- there is something for everyone.

This year’s theme is Towards a New Horizon, reflecting our hope for and commitment to the South African non-profit sector, and those who serve it.

About #ThinkGood

 #ThinkGood was established in 2015, by the NPO Service Providers’ Network, a network of professionals who offer services to non-profit organisations in South Africa. The network offers assistance with fundraising, marketing, financial management, governance, compliance and IT, among others.

The event came about as the network’s commitment to International Mandela Day and has quickly become a firm favourite on the Cape Town non-profit calendar. In 2020, it has gone digital, making it possible for people across South Africa to share this unique learning and networking opportunity.
