What our clients say about us
Creative Economy were invaluable to Godinymayin as we pivoted the organisation to a more community focused, innovative approach. The five-year strategic plan they developed focused staff on achieving key KPI’s, which has led to extraordinary results including achieving increased revenue in comparison to pre-COVID levels. The current success and energy at Godinymayin is a credit to the work of Helene and Creative Economy

It has been a great pleasure for the GYRACC Board in Katherine NT to work with Helene George and Creative Economy in developing our new strategic plan and budget. Helene did her research about the organisation before our first planning meeting. She had a good understanding of our strengths and weaknesses and put the hard questions to us as we worked through the plan and created a new business model that will ensure we continue to deliver a great art centre experience in a relevant and dynamic way. We are extremely happy with the outcome of our partnership and would happily recommend Creative Economy services who need to reassess who and where they are in this rapidly changing world

For more than 20 years Creative Economy has been working with cultural practitioners and institutions to understand the full cultural value of what they do and how this can translate into lasting change. Creative Economy have consistently shown how cultural value is not the junior partner of economic impact but at its transformative heart and the root of long-term sustainable livelihoods
