Our first reciepent of the Certificate in Cross Sector Partnering is Samantha Welke from Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet in Adelaide, shown here being presented with her Certificate by Ian Dixon.
Samantha's comments after completing the Certificate were:
" The Certificate in Cross Sector Partnering provided me with insight into all key aspects of the partnering process. I am now conscious of the types of partnering relationships, how they evolve and how to develop and monitor those relationships for successful partnering. The Certificate also provided me with an awareness and comprehension of 'blocks' to partnering, and the important internal governance and administrative preparation required by organisations wanting to position themselves for entering into cross sector partnerships. Additionally, the assessments were highly relevant to the course content and a valuable use of my limited time. I am certainly keen to study further in this emerging field. "
