Digimeets Series: What’s our Plan B? 2020 CEO sleep-out event, during a pandemic
Presented by the AMI South Australian Committee.
‘Never waste a crisis’- Louise Miller Frost
About the Speaker:
Louise Miller FrostCEO, St Vincent De Paul Society SA
Louise Miller Frost is an experienced CEO and Board Director, working primarily in the not for profit, local government and health arenas. When she accepted the role of CEO of St Vincent De Paul Society SA in December 2019, she had no idea what she would be walking into when she commenced the role on 10 March 2020.
By 21 March social distancing rules were imposed and non-essential services were being closed; on the 26th March many staff at Vinnies were stood down or on reduced hours, and on the 28th March the Vinnies shops were closed.
This was not the first 90 days she had planned for!
St Vincent de Paul Society SA is a member-based organisation with a 3,500 largely volunteer workforce delivering services in 61 sites across SA. Best known for its Op Shop network, Fred’s Van meal services and its Men’s and Women’s Crisis Accommodation Services, it also delivers emergency assistance and social support across the state via its volunteer and Member network. Vinnies receives very little government funding and is instead largely funded through the retails operations (op shops) and fundraising.
