We thank Mr Paul Heng for recommending that leaders in non-profit organisations undergo professional leadership courses, such as the Compass programme by the Centre for Non-Profit Leadership ("Leaders in non-profit groups should be properly trained"; Monday).
The Compass programme by the Centre for Non-Profit Leadership helps non-profit organisations create leadership pipelines and build effective boards, as part of our continuous drive to develop leadership capabilities.
We partner renowned organisations, such as Development Dimensions International, Bain & Co, Mercer and TSMP Law Corp to bring about customised programmes and services to ensure sustainable leadership in non-profit organisations.
There is still ample space and opportunity for organisations and individuals to provide support to the non-profit sector in the leadership space.
With more public and corporate contribution and involvement in the non-profit sector, it will be better positioned to provide higher quality services to its beneficiaries and move towards a more caring society.
