I work with individuals and teams in the for-purpose sector on a project basis providing tailored consultancy services in strategy, evaluation, consumer participation and mentoring.
My preference with project work is for it to be framed as a capacity building opportunity for your organisation, team or for a talented member of your team. Rather than hiring me to come in and 'be clever' I will work with you to tailor an approach that achieves your desired outcome WHILST working in close partnership with and building the capabilities of your team.
I facilitate 'critical conversations' and strategy sessions. In these sessions we explore challenges and design strategic solutions to address them. I am not afraid to welcome the 'elephants into the room' and take a disruptive and wholehearted approach to creating meaningful dialogue, insight, strategy and executable actions that will extend the reach and impact of your work. I have many tools that I draw on to achieve the outcomes you are seeking from these conversations.
All of the MAD workshops I offer can be delivered as an in-house offering - working closely with your team to build their skills and knowledge and to create the basis for shared understanding, language and, ultimately, focussed action. In addition, I have extensive experience in the delivery of training in: strategic planning; consumer participation; and evaluation planning and implementation. I would be pleased to tailor a training program to meet the needs of your team.
I offer the MAD Mentoring Program in a group format. This program, offered over six- or twelve- months involves a mix of individual and group activities and discussions. It can be a great mechanism for developing insight into yourself within the context of the team of individuals you work with and brings the added value that comes from learning from each other. It requires a commitment to a wholehearted approach - stepping up and out of your comfort zone and making a commitment to yourself and the group to be vulnerable, to fully participate and to reap the rewards that will inevitably come if that is achieved.
