About Henley Club

The Henley Club is a private social club based in Melbourne, Australia. Our members are selected from diverse backgrounds and represent the future of Australian leadership. Members are connected through other members to all of the major clubs, groups and associations around the world. 

The Henley Club's mission is to identify and address risks and opportunities facing Australia by connecting concerned people in regular informal settings. Through our working groups we run and host events, discussions, skills and knowledge sharing sessions. In 2013, these working groups were environmental & social justice, finance & investment, medicine & health, entrepreneurship & innovation, science & technology, food & wine, and arts & culture. We aim to enable rapid growth of our members' professional, knowledge and capital networks. We aim to reduce the collaboration deficit in the non-profit sector and improve the social fabric between leaders of organisations.

We wanted to become a B Corp to signal to our investors, members and stakeholders that we are managed and governed in an ethical and sustainable way.  We also wanted to learn more about the emerging global best practice that B Corp is championing that we might be able to leverage in our business.  We are deeply supportive of the B Corp certification and so want to use our position in the values driven sector to make others aware of B Corp.

The Change We Seek®

Henley Club seeks to reduce the collaboration deficit in the cause-related and non-profit sector in Australia.  Henley Club is successful if passionate individuals driving their organisations are equipped with the best possible skill, knowledge and capital networks to make their visions possible.

What makes us a better company?
