APAC / March 2017 93 K Company: Gold Coast Hospital Foundation Name: Kim Sutton Email: [email protected] Web Address: Address: 1 Hospital Boulevard Southport 4215 Telephone: +61 7 5594 6986 All that Glitters is Gold g organisation at the end of 2012 it was nearly twenty years old but had just 1.6FTE employees, low brand recognition, no sale-able products and was turning over an average of $800,000 per year. I have completely overhauled it, implemented new systems, structures and procedures, revenue streams and am growing a dynamic and passionate team and programs. “In five years I want to see this organisation turning over at least $5m per year… not merely for the sake of raising more money but for the sake of delivering more meaningful services to children and adults who are injured and unwell. “We will secure significant major gift and commercial income – ensuring a good, steady and stable mix of philanthropic and commercial revenue.” Kim was recently won a 2017 Scholarship with the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) and is currently studying, the AICD Company Director’s Course, Australia’s benchmark Directors program. She is a firm advocate for the need for not-for- profit organisations to champion sound business strategy, management and governance processes.
