Ready to save time?

I'm Kerry Grace founder of the Community Practitioner Academy. I've been working in and alongside not for profits and community groups for most of my life.

I've held a range of positions from CEO of a regional development organisation to service manager of an Aboriginal Corporation, Project Officer, Board member and volunteer.

It's time to share my skills with you.

Why? Because I know your resources are limited and your community's needs are great.  I know you care about your community and it's my mission to take away the administrative burden by sharing skills to save you time, money and your stress levels. 

Don't be fooled by the corporate look on the right - I'm a regional Australian and I like plain language. (sorry not sorry about getting straight to the point).
