History

Over the last 50 years, we have created one of the most substantial resources of reliable, practical, useful and helpful information and knowledge for regional, rural and remote communities, their businesses, non-profit organisations, their ecosystems and advisors.

The resources help us to inexpensively create solutions focused on creating new conversations, which will lead to better relationships, better health and better businesses as well as more exciting places in which to live and work.

Tap into and rely on our experience to support your future aspirations.

regional people's issues,Challenges everyone in regional, rural and remote communities face:

  • Recovering from adversity; drought, floods, fire and more recently the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Fostering entrepreneurship to find better ways to adjust to a new future.
  • Starting and growing a business can be too hard doing it by yourself.
  • Finding new ways to help people cope with adversities.
  • Many lean too heavily on their own understanding of the value they can offer.
  • The need to take away the confusion and create better 'customer experiences'.
  • Ways better ways to successfully solve problems and frustrations, frustrations, while fulfilling want and need.
  • Finding new ways to help people generate positive ideas and opportunities for the future.
  • Ensuring the right strategies are implemented to achieve the desired outcomes.
  • Stop the lagging in technology, systems, tools and processes to increase capacity.
  • Applying creativity and innovation to cope and find new hope.
  • Ecosystems with knowledge are not responsive enough to improve their value chains and community import replacements.

The challenge is to provide practical hands-on information, knowledge, and experience that will positively impact regional people's issues and need to deal with successfully. The big question is, "how do you provide quality support 24/7 which people can rely on to do what they need to do"?

Perhaps a more significant challenge is helping people to navigate new concepts without being misunderstood or watered down. We look at the essential factors necessary to make things happen at a grassroots level and achieve the outcomes people are seeking.
