Since launching Blak Wattle November 2020, we have partnered with many varied clients and organisations. From social enterprises, grassroots organisations, and Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations to government and non-government organisations. We are a dynamic and insightful team with proven experience increasing performance in teams to drive outcomes. We utilise the power of data, evidence, and Aboriginal knowledge systems such as, deep listening, two-way learning, reciprocity, and storytelling to transform your organisation and leadership style by helping staff feel more connected and aligned to reduce burnout.
strategic planning & Change management
We recognise at the heart of each organisation’s culture, is their why, their strategic and operational plan. Whilst there is no universally agreed strategic planning process. Blak Wattle’s process focuses on working with stakeholders to understand the transformative power of story and value setting to mobilise change.
Blak Wattle helps organisations define a bold vision for their future, where they intend to play to win, and creates a plan with objectives, goals and desired staff attributes to reach that future.

Caroline was just remarkable - she was such a powerful, insightful, gorgeous storyteller. Our team was captivated for the entire session, and felt privileged to have spent the time learning about her story, family and lived experiences as a First Nations woman. We highly recommend her workshops for any businesses that want to engage in cultural awareness training. We look forward to engaging Blak Wattle deep into the future, as we see this as only the beginning -
