Workshop-based consulting that delivers transformative goals, strategies, and planning for not-for-profit organisations
Yarn Australia's vision is to build connection and unity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People and Non-Indigenous Australians. With its strengths-based focus on relationships, story telling and cultural connection, I consider their approach to be uniquely powerful and healing.
Yarn has a clear mission and vision, a fantastic program, great leadership, and ambitious plans for the future. I am helping Yarn tie it all together by exploring goals, strategies, business planning, and management tools that are deeply practical, and embody the organisations' values and ethos.
Go Austin/Vamos Austin (GAVA) works to improve the health and wellbeing of low income residents in Austin, Texas. It is one of the city's most dynamic small non-profits. Did I say small? A small team perhaps, but they have an enormous positive impact and reach through their large network of community organisers and leaders, as well as through the methodologies, educational materials and performance data they have developed.
Since early 2017 I have assisted GAVA in a time of transition, helping the team develop new strategies, better understand itself and its structural needs, and forge effective partnerships with other organisations. This has been the time when I've been developing my own ideas for dynamic strategic planning and meeting facilitation, and I'm extremely grateful to GAVA for investing in me.
"It has been incredibly helpful to have Luke as a steward of our visioning process, especially during such a difficult period of transitions in our organization. I'm so happy to say that when I look back at the strategic plan we created 18 months ago, we are right on track!"
Carmen Llanes Pulido, GAVA Executive Director
I have 10 years of experience working and consulting with big and small organisations in the non profit sector including World Vision, Oxfam, Global Reporting Initiative, PATH and Austin's Volunteer Healthcare Clinic.
