Liz’s work is informed by 35 years of field experience working with health and community service organisations and with all levels of government. Her early career as a practitioner and public servant provided important insights about how support services impact individuals, families, and communities. Liz’s experience with bureaucratic processes has given her a grass roots appreciation of the importance of good public policy and effective service systems that can respond appropriately to peoples’ needs.
Over the past 25 years, Liz has consulted widely across service sectors and has contributed to seminal changes in the way people with a disability and people from culturally diverse backgrounds are supported. On behalf of State Government, much of this work has been about tailoring services to meet individual needs and offering genuine opportunities for people to thrive. This body of work comprises numerous concept frameworks, discussion papers, reports to government, toolkits, multimedia resources, research projects, evaluations, and organisational planning and consultations.
At LDC Group Liz works energetically with her colleagues to provide consultancy that values the purposes of human services, is contextualised, and nuanced to the unique functions of organisations that support people to overcome disadvantage and hardship. Her understanding of public systems, policies and practices enables Liz to work with the complexities and challenges that many organisations face. She works with leaders and workers to boost outcomes for their communities and their workforces using methodologies that help people to reflect, plan, upskill and seek clarity of purpose.
