Many thanks, this was very helpful and has really supported our direction with the organisation in supporting staff development. The workbook was clear and concise and detailing exactly what was requested for this training….you are wonderful trainers, looking forward to more training with you.
I was very pleased NCOSS engaged Tim Childs Consulting for several projects while I was CEO. Tim and his colleagues took the time to understand what was required, kept us well informed of progress and delivered high quality work. Their understanding of the community sector meant that facilitation of forums, workshops and consultations provided great input and insightful reports for NCOSS' policy and sector advocacy work.
The Legal Centre hired Tim as a Consultant to undertake an OH&S audit of the Domestic Violence and Legal Outreach venues, undertaking risk assessments and advising on risk management strategies. Tim was also contracted to facilitate a Strategic Review and Planning day for Committee, staff and volunteers, to develop a five-year plan for the Centre. Tim also developed and implemented a structured supervision program for staff and trained Service Coordinators in implementing this program with their staff. The feedback from the staff during this period has been extremely positive. Staff members have informed the Committee that they feel supported professionally, and Tim’s positive management style has generated improved teamwork, and improved staff morale.
Tim Childs Consulting has supported The Tropical Fruits through extensive pro-bono work in the areas of constitutional change and governance for many years. Tim has provided the Committee with his expertise and advice through running workshops and training for our committee members on good governance practice and helping us get a handle on contemporary issues for not for profit organisations. Tim has been able to interpret the complicated world of governance in a way that is relevant for our community, enabling successive committees to grow and adapt our organisational processes as we move towards best-practice governance. Without Tim’s work we would not have the solid governance and operational foundations that enable us to provide high quality community events, culminating in our world famous new years eve festival, thank you Tim for your wonderful and greatly appreciated support
Northern Rivers Women and Children’s Services (NORWACS) contracted Tim to undertake a project for us in relation to an amalgamation process that we were undertaking with another Not For Profit organisation. The project involved assisting the amalgamated Board in the development of a new and contemporary governance structure for the organisation. This included Tim facilitating training with the Board, senior management team and staff in the development of a new organisational structure and the development of contemporary governance policies. Tim did an excellent job in facilitating this process which was at times a highly complex process of people, power and politics. Tim was able to provide excellent governance resources which were easily adaptable to our organisation. Tim’s work has enabled NORWACS to move forward with its post-amalgamation goals with confidence, utilizing Tim’s robust governance resources to ensure our organisation is viable with strong governance into the future. I would highly recommend Tim Childs Consulting to any organisation requiring a strengths based, well informed and professional approach to their strategic planning processes.
We engaged the team at Tim Childs Consulting (TCC) to assist us in the development of our new 5 year Strategic Plan. Throughout the process we were impressed at the level of professionalism, attention and energy that Tim and the team displayed, guiding us through the strategic planning process to inform our future work. We all thoroughly enjoyed the actual planning days, which were dynamic, highly participatory and ensured everyone had the ability to contribute to the overall goals and directions of the organisation. Tim is an excellent facilitator, and took us through an amazing process that resulted in us agreeing on a new vision, statement of purpose, strategic goals and a set of articulated organisational values. We are now armed to move forward with confidence to a positive future for the organisation and the community that we serve.
Tim has generously given of his time and expertise to support me during the transition of our organisation from a small team to a nationally recognised and influential entity. His significant experience and understanding of the management issues and the personal challenges that are inherent in the not-for profit sector, are providing me with the management tools and personal confidence which are necessary to ensure our organisation maximises current opportunities. Very grateful!
NCOSS worked with Tim Childs Consulting as part of a much larger project looking at the Community Sector’s engagement with the NSW Government. Tim Childs Consulting work included the provision of three case studies. They were built on one-on-one interviews and focus groups. Their capacity to draw out the themes whilst giving access to the detail fed directly in to the final project report and influenced the recommendations. Tim Childs Consulting also provided invaluable input into other parts of the project. Tim Childs Consulting was easy to work with, understood timeframes, was generous with knowledge and kept us in the loop as the project progressed.
