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.

“Our Developing Leadership Skills programmes have been extremely successful, combining leadership activities and peer feedback with business-specific projects requiring inspirational leadership in the workplace. A key objective for Wates in this programme is the transfer of learning back into the workplace and without a doubt the business projects allow this to happen. A number of business projects are now in the implementation phase and are adding value to the Group."

"18 months into the graduate leadership development programme, and I can truly say it has been such a great experience. The activities we have undertaken have ranged from learning presentation skills, understanding your impact in a team, to having a lot of fun along the way with challenging activities, such as white water rafting and rock climbing. The external training we are fortunate enough to receive, as well as on-the-job training has helped me to build on my career."

“In the course of this set of workshops we got into the shoes of our competitors and looked at our company through their eyes. It gave us all an opportunity to go beyond our business as usual, to discuss with and learn from internal experts, and finally, to think more strategically. I also found the meetings with external experts very inspiring. It was very insightful to look at the market from their perspective.”
