Living and working in regional WA limits the opportunities for professional development due to course and travel costs. The Australian Scholarships Foundation provided a great opportunity for me to attend the Design Thinking course in Perth. I was able to liaise with other NFP managers, share experiences and gain skills from the course relative to my role. By engaging my staff in strategic planning activities utilising Design Thinking principles has been beneficial to the organisation and the services we provide to our clients and stakeholders.
