Thank you so much for your recent support developing our strategic plan. Your professionalism and knowledge of governance and strategic planning made it possible to develop a quality user friendly and workable document. I especially found mentoring regarding business planning and governance invaluable.
Ready to take your governance and planning to the next level?
You see opportunities. You're passionate, just want to get things done. So do others and before you know it you've got so many things happening for your organisation that you're probably beginning to lose focus.
Or have you been struggling of late, grasping for whatever funds come along, willing to shape what you do to get some short term financial stability?
Focus on your governance by examining your core Purpose and develop Vision, Mission and Values that actually mean something and are the heart of everything you do. Use your strategic plan to position your organisation where it matters.
Not sure where to start? We've helped transform organisations from near closure back to successful entities. Let us take the emotion out of the problem to deliver effective resolutions. We'll get you back on track and even more importantly, put you in a position to move forward with a plan, structure and focus.Contact Us

They say that the wisdom is in the room. Never did this statement seem truer than what played out in a recent workshop I had the pleasure of facilitating.

Talk to Us
Port Melbourne Neighbourhood Centre (PMNC) has engaged Pat on a variety of projects over the past 12 months and have been very pleased with her work.
Pat has been engaged to develop the Port Melbourne Neighbourhood Centre 2015 -2018 strategic plan and also a smaller action plan for our disability arts program. Through the development of both of these planning projects she has shown her flexibility in being able to use a number of strategic development frameworks and facilitation methods in different settings for different purposes. She has been able to tailor these processes to suit the different scale and needs of the groups and has shown herself to be a skilled facilitator in dealing with a variety of competing interests to get a satisfying result.
I found the appreciative enquiry approach used for the PMNC strategic plan an interesting framework that allowed participants to approach the planning process with new perspectives which helped clarify new goals. The process used on the planning day was probably the best strategic planning process I have ever been involved in. It was extremely well planned, thoughtful and interesting, while producing all the required outcomes.
Pat has shown her flexibility and adaptability in being able to meet a number of organisational needs by being able to successfully and expertly perform a variety of other consultancy roles for PMNC. This includes training and mentoring, grant writing expertise which has brought considerable success and also major project partnership work and the development of MOUs and risk plans for large projects. I have worked closely with pat when jointly writing project and funding submissions and have found her ability to analyse what is needed to take reports to their successful completion has been very helpful.
We are pleased to recommend Pat and will continue to engage her on a variety of projects in the future.
Over the last couple of years, our Executive Board has developed a strong relationship with Pat and her team; a relationship that has supported us through lean times and rapid growth. We have been able to smoothly navigate through changes to our constitution, redefining our strategic directions and improving our governance.
As a peak body for multiculturalism, we take our role seriously and value Pat’s wealth of knowledge and know-how.
