Northern Territory Indigenous Grant for Bird Research and Conservation

As the proud sponsor of BirdLife Australia‘s inaugural Northern Territory Indigenous Grant for Bird Research and Conservation, Jackadder International would like to congratulate the winners, the Djurrubu Rangers from Kakadu National Park! 

Jackadder International is proud to support the conservation of the Territory’s amazing birds and we recognise the importance of Indigenous knowledge and capabilities in managing threatened species.

We are excited to have the opportunity to support this inaugural award and look forward to an ongoing partnership with BirdLife Australia and Indigenous communities across the Northern Territory.

Graduate Professional Development Workshop

As part of Jackadder’s Graduate Development Program, our cohort of Digitial Officers (IT Graduates) recently participated in a Communicate with Influence workshop facilitated by Catie Kirk of ART Your Life.  

Communication is one of the most important leadership qualities to have. Communication moves information. Influence moves ideas into action, and produces an effect without the use of force or command. Becoming a strong communicator and influencer could be the key to getting your proposals, ideas, and projects over the line. 

The workshop was practical, fun and engaging with all participants enjoying the session and finding valuable to their personal and professional development.

Jackadder International was recently engaged by the Northern Territory Government’s Department of Corporate and Information Services to undertake an independent Gateway review of the business case for a new All-of-Government Information System.

The review was led by Jackadder International’s Director and Principal Consultant, Lou Martini, and involved a critical assessment of the business case, including the argument to proceed with an enterprise system and the estimated costs, timeframes, governance structure and resource requirements to implement the system. A detailed analysis of the risks and impacts associated with the recommended solution was also undertaken.
