The head of Save the Children Australia wants charities to turn their business models on their head.

Paul Ronalds says if they don't change they will die.

He was speaking at an NGO conference in New Zealand and told civil society they needed to adapt and embrace the private sector.

Mr Ronalds spoke with Dominic Godfrey and started by highlighting the importance of 'capturing the impact' of an organisation's actions.
