Embedding sustainability into your organisation’s DNA

13 May 2021

There is growing awareness that value creation is a long-term construct and that companies must strike the right balance between financial imperatives and obligations associated with other ‘capitals’. Companies should be deeply considering the sustainable development issues and risks that will impact their ability to create value over the long-term, and hardwiring their responses into their strategies and business models.

Testimonials

We have been exceptionally impressed with the support and expertise provided by Right Lane. The level of organisation and planning prior to sessions, as well as Tal’s skilled facilitation and knowledge of the legal sector, has meant the sessions have been incredibly productive. The follow up post sessions with the notes have also been of such a high standard.

I’m so pleased that we have ended up somewhere we couldn’t have envisaged at the beginning of the process, as it means we weren’t anchored and have really been guided by the process. Thank you!

CEO, community legal services

On behalf of our team I would like to convey my heartfelt appreciation for your outstanding work and contribution towards the development of our business case. I would like to express my sincere thanks to you for your excellent work within a short period of time.

Your team went out of the way to reach all key stakeholders and come up with out of the box ideas, which has made the proposed business case unique and relevant for all involved.

The executive noticed and appreciated your attention to detail and relentless determination to release a quality product on time – which you did!

Chair, Government Taskforce 

I have had the privilege to work with the wonderful and diverse team at Right Lane Consulting since December 2013.

I will never forget my first encounter when they led our strategic planning day with the George Hicks Foundation (GHF). With thorough planning, exquisite execution and beautiful documentation Right Lane set us on a clear and streamlined path that enabled the consolidation of GHF and formation of the Mornington Peninsula Foundation (MPF).

Their support has continued unabated, and I have worked with many of the team. Like tessellated tiles they mesh together providing whatever we need from strategic planning and board capability through grass roots workshop and risk management. MPF owes much of its success to this great organisation. And, importantly, we always have a lot of fun!
