Typical Projects

  • Working closely with a range of agencies, she has managed the design and facilitation of a range of workshops, conferences and symposia. These have included national conferences and forums for prominent National Lobby Groups; a national conference involving 450 staff for a large Commonwealth agency; and stakeholder consultations involving all segments of the Childcare Industry for a Commonwealth Agency and the relevant Minister and other Commonwealth and state representatives. Her work has included advising and reporting to Commonwealth Ministers, CEOs and Boards; co-designing hypotheticals with media personalities; training co-facilitators and advising and coaching keynote speakers.

  • Designing and facilitating the Educational segment for the Regional Summit convened by the Deputy Prime Minister in October 1999. Her task involved working with a range of academics, community representatives and educators to develop, in a relatively short period of time, a set of recommendations which she presented to the Summit on the group’s behalf. This required the effective distillation of a wide range of issues into a succinct and realistic set of recommendations which reflected the needs of all the stakeholders.

  • Working with a large Commonwealth Agency facilitating discussions and reporting on a key area of Commonwealth/State social policy. This involved facilitating a workshop with significant competing views being represented, from academics, representatives of business, industry and community sectors and representatives from all levels of government.

  • Facilitating an extensive range of discussions for a Commonwealth Agency in consulting with business and industry representatives and industry associations and consultants to establish more effective networks and promote an understanding of how to optimise industry networks. This work led to Di being invited to undertake similar work in New Zealand. Working as a facilitator for a high profile Statutory Authority on two long term assignments involving the management of on-going consultations with stakeholders in industry, industry associations and small business.

  • Di conducts a two day residential Masterclass in Facilitation and Representational Skills, and another two day residential, Executive Impact, which is designed to enhance participants’ ability to be heard and have impact in their leadership roles. She is currently designing one on Whole of Government.
