We’ve all seen what this damage can do – loss of trust by community & members; poor organizational performance; damaged reputations; financial mismanagement; legal issues; board closure…

Excellent workshops. I really valued the training and presentation by Shane.
Percy Neal, Yarrabah Aboriginal Community Council
Hi Anne. Just to let you know the Mookai Rosie staff thoroughly enjoyed the two days workshop with Shane…Since then I have seen marked improvements in a lot of areas – and the CODE OF HONOUR has been typed up and distributed to all the staff. To add any further points thought of after the workshop, today in our staff meeting they agreed that it be typed up, and printed in Poster size and displayed in the workplace together with the Above the Line and Below Line diagram. At the workshop we all agreed to invite Shane back again in September to do a follow up on the team building and do more training. Many thanks.
Heather Saleh, Mookai Rose
The support process from the office for completing the Business (Governance) course was excellent. It was good to update and refresh my knowledge. Once I got familiar with the process, I found the training excellent. I would recommend the training to others. I would also recommend that any student undergo a face-to-face session with the GTI staff, this proved very beneficial to me.
