TESTIMONIALS

Their success is why I do what I do


Highly organised, motivated and with integrity in spades, she has an exceptional ability to process significant volumes of organisational information and make coherent sense of structural deficits, program and policy gaps in a way that is truly inspiring.

MY APPROACH

Make a Difference: Think Culture

I've seen firsthand the power of moving beyond equality through the organisations I've worked with. When you move your team, your leaders and your organisation to a culture focus, you achieve things that positively impact every aspect of your organisation. I work with you to do this through:

  • Leadership expertise carved through experience
  • Consulting grounded in real world application
  • Genuine care for you and your team and the work you do
  • Equity led intercultural approaches and solutions

If you're ready to take your strategy and people outcomes to a new level and realise your goals and the organisational culture you've always wanted, then contact me and we can get started.

Case Study: National Disability Services (NDS)

"NDS engaged Mandy Gadsdon from Collective Connections & Solutions across 2018-20 to work with NDS and disability service organisations to develop an Aboriginal Employment Guide and Toolkit, and deliver workshops to guide and support Aboriginal employment and workforce participation across the WA disability sector.

The guide and workshops have been well received and have assisted organisations to become more culturally responsive. Importantly, this helps disability service organisations in their provision of culturally appropriate and safe services to Aboriginal people with disabilities.

Mandy’s expertise in cultural matters & workforce development along with her strong interpersonal and communication skills have been instrumental in the success of this project."

Case Study: Quantum Consulting Australia (QCA)

"Mandy has provided consultancy services to Quantum Consulting Australia (QCA) for various reviews across the Health, Child Protection and Education industry sectors. In each of those reviews, I have been impressed with the quality of service and insight provided by her, in particular, her ability to:

1. readily assess the contextual particulars within which the program or service operates

2. engage with stakeholders at all levels and

3. develop meaningful (and workable) reform options

QCA is pleased to provide these comments in support of Collective Connections & Solutions and has no reservations in recommending the organisation, or Mandy Gadsdon, for consultancy services."

Case Study: Indigenous Psychological Services (IPS)

"As a small business owner of more than 22 years I have built a significant brand based on achieving outcomes in a highly complex field. I therefore often struggle to find consultants who can deliver results and who I trust implicitly. The exception has been Mandy.

She has value added to my business to the extent that we have consistently ‘over-delivered’ on all of our clients expectations when she has been involved. Highly organised, motivated and with integrity in spades, she has an exceptional ability to process significant volumes of organisational information and make coherent sense of structural deficits, program and policy gaps in a way that is truly inspiring.

The difference lies in her diligence in being aware of and understanding Government policy direction, program outcomes and synergy and most importantly, in her commitment to making a difference to the lives of Indigenous people. It is rare indeed that I have seen this combination of capabilities. Mandy sees things that most do not – that is what organisations need to aspire to operate at their best possible capacity. I cannot recommend her highly enough."
