What we do

We integrate all-hazards resilience into business as usual


Small Biz




Disaster resilience should be a strategic business priority to sustain your people, assets, brand equity and profits.

Australian businesses now face more frequent compound disasters than ever before.

It’s not a case of if there is a disaster, but when.

And as a CEO, you need to ensure your organisation can respond.

You need to integrate forward-thinking resilience-led mindsets into your strategic priorities and culture.

If you can do this, you’ll be in a better position for sustainable success.

We work with CEOs and Executive Teams to build skills in:

  • Holistic organisational resilience
  • Effective disaster giving and goodwill
  • Industry and government collaboration


Did you know that 40% of small businesses never reopen after a major disaster?

And that 80% will close within two years of a disaster? 

We’re here to ensure your small business is not another statistic.

Making resilience part of your day-to-day planning doesn’t have to be expensive or time consuming. And being able to respond to disaster will save you in the long run.

Our fun and affordable group coaching and online webinars are perfect for micro and small biz owners. 

We help you:

  • Understand disasters
  • Identify risks to your business
  • Plan and adapt for ongoing success



We all know that it’s people that build resilience.

Not buildings or bridges.

It’s the people in our communities that make us resilient.

Our place-based programs help communities build social capital. By connecting stakeholders, we’ll help you build resilience.

We work with local business chambers, tourism associations, councils, business and community groups.

Together we help communities to prepare for, respond to and recover from all kinds of disasters.

We’re leaders in:

  • Community resilience programs
  • Driving economic sustainability
  • Place-based capability building


We now live in an era of compound disasters.

This has major social, economic and environmental impacts on all levels of Government services, resources and infrastructure.

Communities have new needs and expectations from Governments before, during and after disasters.

Disaster resilience is a shared responsibility.

Federal, State and Territory and Local Governments need to develop and lead inclusive, outcome led policies and programs. Together, you can contribute to all-hazards resilience in the future.

Disaster resilience is no longer a buzzword. 

It’s a necessity.

Our collective are specialists in:

  • Activating shared responsibility
  • Leading inclusive collaborations
  • Strategic stakeholder relations
