Leadership and Fundraising Training at the CMTO

At the Community Media Training Organisation (CMTO) we’re continually innovating in sector skills development, consulting on high quality effective training techniques and best practice in e-learning.  The future of our sector depends on strengthening governance, nurturing leadership skills, and developing diverse income streams for financial sustainability.

A social enterprise and leadership development approach fits with the community aims of the sector:

  • Social enterprises are socially-beneficial companies which reinvest profits back into their own activities and for the benefit of their communities.
  • Leadership is a process which maximizes the efforts of others toward the achievement of a collective goal.

This project adapts the approach to meet the unique needs of community media organisations. With a focus on increasing diversity, it fosters existing leadership and enterprise potential within the sector through flexible learning and mentoring programs.
