What We Can Do For You

Strategic directions

Strategic Planning

Without a Strategic Plan, any organisation is operating in a vacuum. We can work with you either individually of in workshops to produce a vision of the future to excite and motivate your organisation, and all stakeholders including employees. Contact us to discuss your particular issues.

Artificial Intelligence

The rapid and continuing growth of AI capabilities is nothing short of amazing.The opportunities for business and community to adopt a lot of this technology are begging to make your life easier, your organisation more productive and you far more creative. We can assist with AI assessment and implementation.


Community & Leadership

Community organisations are critical to the survival of our society. We need good leaders to drive these organisations and bring people together. We help train in leadership and organisation governance to build strong, resilient people and organisations. We can also assist with grant proposals and constitution rewrites.


Ric was a student of mine at the Australian Institute of Business. Ric is a strategic thinker and his aptitude for good corporate governance is excellent. He proves his interest and drive in this field and is always looking and thinking on outside-the-box opportunities to enhance corporate governance for his organisation/clients. Ric would be an asset to the Board of any organisation. If you ever have the chance to work for or with Ric, I’d wholeheartedly recommend that you take it.

I have collaborated with Ric across a number of different situations and am always left feeling grateful for the experience. I find his open and honest communication refreshing. He shares great insights communicated with respect and importantly he brings people along on the journey. His sense of community and drive to do what is right and just I find inspiring. If every community had a Ric our world would be a much better place for everyone. He leads from within through listening and empowerment and in my experience also leads by example. He brings a combination of lived and professional experience combined with passion and a very strong sense of social justice. I'd welcome the opportunity to work with Ric again and look forward to watching his impact extend across our Central Victorian communities and beyond.
