There are many great business ideas and not-for-profit initiatives out there but even the best projects fall apart without good governance and management to make sure there are real results. Aboriginal Governance & Management Program Manager, Wes Miller, and Western Desert Dialysis Chief Executive Officer, Sarah Brown, who will present the keynote address at the upcoming APONT Innovating to Succeed Forum, recently spoke with the Centralian Advocate about why the forum addresses exactly this challenge. 

The forum is an opportunity for NT Aboriginal organisations, large and small, to come together and share an open discussion about practical strategies that are working for them and how they got to where they are now. As Sarah says, “our story is really about grassroots, determination to make life better and people learning the challenges of running an organisation along the way. We’ve learnt lots... so hopefully we can share that and have some fun. We’ve got some funny stories to tell as well.”
