We’ll take you on a journey that shines light into government’s hidden corners
Getting to grips with uncertainty and becoming agile
Check out our video on getting to grips with uncertainty and becoming agile in local government.
Our approach draws on our experience providing coaching, consulting, and leadership training in the sector.
How Government Works
Let’s get right down to the reality of how our government system works with your organisation and sector at the centre. Once you’re up to speed, you’ll feel more confident and see the different parts of the machine working.
We’ll paint an up-to-date picture for you. And we’ll talk your language, so the learning is relevant and tailored to you.
Working with the Official Information Act (OIA)
Accountability, openness and transparency are at the heart of the OIA. Legislation, processes and recent cases will make sure you have the full picture and can play your role.
We’ll cover the legislative basics and then go further into Ombudsman’s guidelines and how your organisation manages requests.
How Local Government Works
Stay ahead with what’s happening in your Council and local government overall. With so much changing, you need to understand the basics of how our 78 councils operate and the challenges they face. Water, infrastructure, climate change, local services are all on the agenda.
Our tailored workshops focus on your council and region.
