“A perfect combination of foundation theory and practical application to help set your organisation up for sustainable success.”
Alison Ewings, Westpac

“Excellent workshop, a must for any sustainability report writer to attend. You will learn so much more than just GRI.”
Katrina Brooks, Mirvac

“I recently attended ACCSR’s Social Licence to Operate two-day course in Brisbane. Not only was the content of the session comprehensive it was also very practical which provided immediate and real application to my current project. This was certainly time and money well spent. A real investment both personally and professionally. “ –  Nikki Accornero, Project Manager – Community and Stakeholder Engagement CTSCo Pty Ltd

“The workshop was highly interactive, informative with hands-on learning, lectures with group-work on real case studies. The presenter had an extensive working knowledge of the GRI4, was very engaging and a very good presenter. Strongly recommend this workshop to organisations that are at any stage of their sustainability journey and reporting. Great for multinationals, local companies and government organisations. I have learnt a lot! “Jolanta Paull, Director, Essjay Consulting Ltd

“Leeora was highly engaged and engaging. She managed to connect participant comments and observations with specific concepts, theories and examples. This high level (and fast) synthesis of ideas kept the course on track and had me engaging with all elements of the workshop.” Participant at Stakeholder Engagement Master Class

“This short course was great, giving a formal structure and framework to guide stakeholder engagement activities. Content was practical and easy to apply.” Participant at Stakeholder Engagement Master Class
