Attendees at the 2016 AIGM Grantmaking in Australia Conference participated in a lively series of Table Hotspot sessions.
Each session saw delegates gather with fellow funders to discuss and reflect on one of 10 grantmaking topics.
The Hotspots allowed like-minded funders to tackle a grantmaking issue, discuss how they've faced it and share techniques to address it.
Many grantmakers have had to steer an out-of-control grants program back onto the road or, at the very least, endeavour to improve a misfiring program.
Building meaningful relationships with grantees and having clear policy documents laying out how performance issues are dealt with are among the key aspects of addressing the issue.
