About

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) is the principal adviser to the Commonwealth Government on the care and development of the Great Barrier Reef.

The GBRMPA wanted to improve their community engagement and encourage a culture of best practice. They needed an agreed framework of what working in partnership with the community meant in terms of behaviours and attitudes (both internal and external), tools and processes.

Impact Australia worked with GBRMPA to:

  • Assess the current culture towards community engagement
  • Facilitate a senior management workshop to work through the issues raised and develop future strategy
  • Communicate a strategy for a culture change towards best practice community engagement

Following our intervention the GBRMPA benefited from a common vision highlighting what community engagement means for their business.

I’m so pleased that the Global Travel Middle East team has this power of making a difference in the community in our strategy and I can’t wait to do more.”
