Think HQ was proud to be among Australia’s top 200 civic leaders driving positive social change as a supporter of the Australian Progress Leadership 2016 conference in Canberra in early June.
Issues and topics covered were broad-ranging - from climate change, gambling and engaging civil society, to the outlook for Australian in 2030 and the future of health, cities and the role of government.
Among the speakers was 2015 Fullbright Indigenous Professional Scholar Michelle Deshong, who made a powerful call for greater representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in government and all areas of leadership in society.
Evan Wolfson, Founder and President of Freedom to Marry, provided a behind-the-scenes look at the decades-long campaign he ran to achieve marriage equality in the US, outlining persistence and belief in human rights as the key to their success.

Welcome to Think HQ’s inaugural newsletter.
2016 marks our sixth year in business and in June, also heralds the welcome of the tenth member to our seemingly ever-growing team. I am so proud of the team we have built, and a big shout-out goes to Anna Chalko – Think HQ’s first employee who is celebrating her fifth anniversary. Her contribution and commitment to the growth of the business has been awesome.
I also have to pinch myself with the calibre of clients we get to work with – a small sample of which is profiled in the newsletter.
This year also marks our transition from a PR agency, to a full-service communications business – meaning we now offer in-house, digital, web development and design services. It’s an exciting move, and one that enables us to offer more comprehensive support for our clients.
I also really want to say a big thanks to our clients and supporters, who have helped grow Think HQ over the last six years.
I really hope you enjoy the newsletter. Think HQ...Read More
What steered you towards philanthropy?
I work in philanthropic communications because I love the passion and dedication of people in the social change space – it’s uplifting to see society change for the better through what we do. Philanthropy is about so much more than money - it is also about the time, networks, and the soft skills that are underrated.
What has been the highlight of your philanthropic career?
There have been many incredible highlights throughout my career. Being able to facilitate and make possible the incredible visions of social change makers is a constant highlight. It’s also awe inspiring to see great change coming from the smallest contributions. What people can achieve in the NFP sector, with scarce resources, is phenomenal.
With the rise of social media, where do you see social marketing and philanthropy heading?
The rise of social media has definitely helped put great philanthropic endeavours under the spotlight and into mainstream discussion.
I think social...Read More
