Indigenous leaders in partnership training

Indigenous leaders training group

Indigenous corporations in the central Great Southern took part in a GSDC-organised workshop on Governance for Partnerships on June 18 and 19.

Established and emerging leaders from Katanning, Kojonup, Tambellup and Gnowangerup attended the program, which was aimed to build understanding of what makes a best practice partnership to develop and work together on projects. The workshop covered definitions and legal structures of partnerships, selecting the appropriate structure and knowing its implications (including when a partnership may not be required), how to initiate and negotiate partnership discussions, principles of a good partnership, governance, documentation and resources and support.

OTS Management consultant Teik Oh presented the workshop. Mr Oh has over 35 years’ experience working with Australian indigenous organisations, communities and businesses in strategic and business planning, feasibility studies, development of business partnerships with commercial companies, organisational restructures, policy and procedure development, business coaching and governance training and development.

Participants in the workshop, pictured above, said they felt more empowered to enter discussions and had a greater understanding of the implications of the various partnership options.
