2013 BRAINS TRUST
The finer points of the initial strategic tactics employed by ASPIRE2013, especially the engagement of school students from Years 7 and 10, was the product of dialogue between Cec McConnell of Thinkscape and Sabrina of Dowling Giudici + Associates. Both continue to consult in enterprises to advance quality learning and other rural and regional initiatives.
The cohesive energy is being lead from the community-based sector with the regional development specialists of Dowling Giudici + Associates with the Carnarvon Chamber of Commerce; together with dedicated personnel and long-time residents from Population Health and Horizon Power – these form the Consortium that are organising the festival. Each of the other 15 partners have worked with others within the group previously and have established working relationships – where this festival provides a unique offering is that it moves the network to a larger scale of collaboration.
