2017 Forum Report Released

News 22 Sep 17

We are pleased to announce the release of the 2017 AGMP Innovating to Succeed Forum Report. The report includes presenter case study summaries, participant analysis, a copy of the program and presenter biographies from the day, held on 3 March at the Alice Springs Convention Centre.

We thank our presenter organisations for reviewing and contributing to their written case study summaries. Each of these is a good news story in itself showcasing an NT Aboriginal organisation’s good governance practice. 

As Program Manager, Wes Miller, explains, ‘There are so many examples to draw on, it’s important to get these stories out to others in the sector, the government, and into the wider public domain.’

We also extend our thanks to everyone who came along and made the day a success. 

Participants told us that the forum had been well worth the investment in time and costs and many said they would attend future AGMP events, commenting that the combination of high calibre speakers and a thoughtful, committed participant group truly made the day a success.

The forum’s message to all participants is that innovation and working to make great ideas a reality is achievable, you just need the right  tools to get there. As one forum participant explained, ‘the breadth of work being done and the sheer force, patience and passion of individuals and organisations to achieve it is incredible.’ 

The full report is available for download here.
