Lister&Sullivan was formed with the ambitious goal to consult and deliver on functional, easy-to-use governance practices for organisations across various sectors, with a specific focus on Western Australian sports organisations. We recognise that the driving factor that fuels most sporting organisation boards, committees and those who volunteer for such roles is to build and develop membership, participation and recognition of their sport within Australia and to see their sport grow within the community.
As such, sometimes, important policies, procedures and practices that govern those organisations can go undeveloped or unreviewed. Allow Lister&Sullivan to fill the gap and be your organisation’s trusted partners alongside you on your organisation’s growth and development journey.
With over 20+ combined years of experience in policy development, governance, risk, compliance, information technology and administration our team is able to offer a wide range of services to our clients. We are confident that we can provide a tailored and comprehensive work plan to ensure your organisation meets its strategic and operational goals.
Being a small enterprise, we recognise the importance of being personable and approachable in how we handle all client interactions. As such the list below is non-exhaustive and additional services and resources are tailored individually to each client’s requirements:
Governance framework development
Policy analysis and development
Strategic and operational planning
Risk and compliance management
Grant writing and application

His knowledge and expertise provide our clients with a concrete foundation on which they will grow and develop by fostering good governance, organisational process and procedure within a safe and appropriate risk appetite.
We begin by identifying the strategic and operational direction of your organisation. We identify the organisation’s strengths and weaknesses and where we can assist in some capacity.
This first stage allows Lister&Sullivan to ensure we are able to identify items for the development of a comprehensive and effective forward work plan for use in the assess stage.
In consultation with the organisation’s executive team, we build a comprehensive forward work plan which will identify a number of things:
- Identified work items
- Risk management of items
- Urgency and impact of items
We will then categorise those items based on their priority.
Once the forward work plan has been agreed to Lister&Sullivan will engage with your organisation to deliver our assigned project items.
During our engagement we take a comprehensive and personable approach to each of our organisations. Trust and confidence is imperative to us.
Once the project and or engagement has been concluded Lister&Sullivan will participate in a evaluation with the organisation’s executive team.
This evaluation will allow us to review any issues with delivery/standards of work and will provide the client with an opportunity to provide feedback. We strive for excellence in everything we do and ask our clients for honest and actionable feedback.
