For over three decades, Annie Talve has worked in and with organisations to design new futures and manage transitions of all kinds. Her strategic thinking and planning capabilities, imaginative community consultation methods, group facilitation skills, and capacity to synthesise complex information and ideas into engaging written text have supported the strategic objectives of culturally diverse communities big and small, urban and regional, national and international.
Original, thorough and insightful, Annie’s company Project Sisu supports the architecture of change: vision, participative design, and community connectedness.
Using community and customer centric design philosophies and techniques, Project Sisu has supported arts, library and cultural institutions in NSW, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong to develop ambitious strategic plans, leadership development programs, scenario planning, transition skills development, service model reviews, customer journey mapping, and advocacy research and messaging.
Now, in the last lap of a long career, Annie has distilled a lifetime of skills and knowledge into the Sisu Salon Series: a set of interconnected train the trainer modules designed to build confidence and practical skills in and for the people who will create the complex cultural landscape of the future.
