David Brookes, Managing Director, Social Traders

What We Said

“Social enterprises sit at the heart of the ‘next economy’

Working closely with the Board and dynamic Senior Leadership team of Social Traders to frame an ambitious 2030 Vision, and successfully attract critical philanthropic and government support despite the onslaught of CV19 was inspiring work”

What They Said

“With the Board and the Leadership team fully engaged first around the scope and responsibility of the strategic planning process, GoodWolf applied a bespoke yet structured approach to help our organisation set its strategic sights. The output was much more than a plan; our whole organisation has been realigned and re-engaged from the top regarding our fundamental purpose.”

Warwick Cavanagh CEO, Bayley House

What We Said

“In this crucial 5-year planning process run throughout CV19 lockdown, we built a coalition of support within the organisation and across the key stakeholder groups to design, frame and set the 5 year plan – implementation risk has been greatly reduced by the engagement, understanding and buy-in across the organisation.”

What They Said

“GoodWolf don’t work from a standard script. They are committed to getting a detailed understanding of organisational context; they truly become embedded; and they offer insightful, nuanced advice. Their work for us was extremely complex, but delivered excellent outcomes and win/win solutions.”

Their wealth of knowledge of the philanthropic sector was applied in a well-structured and consultative approach with our staff resulting in a giving program we can’t wait to launch”

RAM Group

What We Said

“Stepping into the CSR and philanthropy space for the first time can be bewildering, but RAM Group had the most important ingredients in place to get started – a committed executive, an enthusiastic staff committee and a genuine interest in making a difference.”

“The establishment of a working group and your leadership of this group created a new ‘team’, and with this, ownership of outcomes and pride in the work done by all.”

Leonie Boxtel, Director, Alumni & Philanthropy RMIT University

During a 12-week review with us, RMIT took great strides in creating cross-university alignment around a sophisticated approach to philanthropy.”

What They Said

“GoodWolf planned and lead an engaging and structured strategic planning session for our Board, and then helped mould the plan and positioning for ACP’s future. The clarity of thought and breadth of sector knowledge GoodWolf brought to this assignment helped enormously to define our future role as sector lead”

Gerlinde Scholz, Exec Director, Australian Community Philanthropy

What We Said

“Creating a strategic planning framework for peak organisations like ACP with a mix of internal and external stakeholders, and a range of services through to sector advocacy was critical to help assign focus and resources over the next 5 years in support of community-based philanthropy.”

What They Said

“GoodWolf conducted excellent analysis sizing and segmenting the large and complex Trust & Foundation sector in Australia and New Zealand, and assessing its readiness for a shift towards greater impact. Their analytical skill, both quantitative and qualitative, combined with wide and deep understanding of this sector delivered a tool that will help our partnership expand our influence in the sector.”
