Social Responsibility

The Institute is pleased to support a number of local, not-for-profit organisations and charities from across Australia. Our seminars are an ideal way to give exposure to the great work of these organisations.

The Big Issue

Some of our events will have a Big Issue seller in attendance and delegates may choose to show their personal support by purchasing a copy. Half the $5.00 cover price of the magazine goes directly to the seller.

The Big Issue Australia is one of Australia’s leading social enterprises providing creative solutions to the issue of homelessness.

Big Issue vendors are disadvantaged through homelessness, mental illness, drug and alcohol issues or other factors which exclude them from society.
