Facilitation and Presentations
Facilitating community involvement and presenting outcomes in an accessible way.
Innovative community engagement is at the heart of how Green Skills works.
We have extensive experience in facilitating community engagement and involvement programs in a broad range of areas, for a wide range of sectors.
We have worked with Local Governments, regional Natural Resource Management groups and catchment groups to facilitate community involvement and present the outcomes in an accessible way.
Our consultancy staff are also experienced speakers, having presented regularly as guest lecturers, conference presenters and speakers at community events.

“No gifts please” took a fresh twist for Annabelle Newbury’s recent milestone birthday party.
A long time Green Skills staff member since 1998, Annabelle has also been committed to the East Timorese community. So much so that her birthday party included a gift/fundraising register and silent auction for the Friends of Suai/Covalima scholarship program.
“I volunteered at the Covalima Community Centre in Suai (East Timor) for 3 months in 2013, and saw first hand the needs of this community. I wanted to give them ongoing support, and let them know that I hadn’t forgotten about them. I know that this scholarship will make a real difference not just to the scholarship recipient, but to the whole community.” Annabelle Newbury, Green Skills Perth Manager.
Annabelle’s party raised $5,160 towards a Community Development scholarship for a female student from Covalima district to study at the national university in Dili.
Green Skills is lucky to have committed, innovative and extraordinary staff. Happy Birthday Annabelle!

Emerging Community Leadership Program’ for the Department of Regional Development,
Green Skills have brought significant experience in facilitating community engagement and supporting our leadership for sustainability initiatives. With their extensive network of regional contacts across southern WA, they helped us to recruit program participants, and to co-facilitate the program’s adult-learning workshops. The program received positive feedback from program participants and its success was, in no small measure, due to the expertise and support that Louise and Dawn brought to this project.
Ecojobs Services have been excellent, with works attended to and completed on time, to a high standard and within the quoted budget. The personnel are reliable, professional and prompt when working for the City. We have no hesitation in recommending Ecojobs for similar scope of works and looks forward to continuing to work with Green Skills services into the future.
