OUR CONCIERGE SERVICE

We have a growing community of pre-vetted specialists across many disciplines.

At Concierge, we listen to your needs, consult internally and match you accordingly (obligation free).

It saves you time and money in being connected to the right specialist and solution.

More about the Concierge service

Our Concierge service is the only service of its kind in Australia. It is aligned with our concern for changemaker wellbeing and our vision of eradicating changemaker burnout.

We saw this service as a major gap in our sector. Where else can organisation leaders go to find out about specialists and support available to them?

We have conducted more than 150 Concierge conversations in the last two years, and we are known for being a trusted resource. 

At Concierge, our Community Managers will listen to and understand your needs, discuss some solutions available to your organisation, and – where you agree – help you connect to a 'good fit' specialist.

While our community of specialists provide traditional consulting and business services, they also offer many packaged solutions – currently about 65. We are able to help explain these to you as well, and we think you’ll appreciate the wide array of choices and price points.

There is no obligation to work with us, and we pride ourselves on being a trusted, reliable community as and when you need us.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land and waters and their knowledge of the places where we gather to collaborate and strengthen communities. In our work, we recognise the importance of Country, not just as a place, but how it also maintains community, family, kin, lore and langage.

We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

This always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.

We support the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
