art4u.australia has partnered with Maus Australia and Employsure to provide arts organisations with business advisory services, to guide you onto a sustainable base, ensure you remain compliant with industrial relations legislation, workplace safety and occupational health & safety
The business advisory process commences with a business health check. During the process the management group identifies the gap between the current state of your arts business and where you want it to be in future.
The evidence provided by the business health check guides decision making, business planning and prioritising ongoing activities.
The business advisory process includes monthly gathering of data, preperation of visual dashboards for your committee and management and support for managers to guide implementation.
This highly engaging process helps you to establish and operate your arts organisation as a business, complete with business planning, KPI’s, operations manual and policies for HR and workplace safety.
Small arts organisations with gross revenue of $2.5M or less may benefit from a subscriptions to our e-mentor advisory service.
