Introducing the principals

Carole Taylor has many years experience as the CEO of four not-for-profit organisations spanning over 20 years. She most recently headed up CRANAplus, an organisation that educates, supports and advocates for remote health professionals, a position she held for just on six years.

Prior to entering the non-Government sector, she was the chief of staff/senior advisor to a Federal Minister in the Federal Government.

With regional, urban and remote experience spanning three state and territory spheres, Carole has managed to cover all aspects of project development and management and is just as comfortable in dealing with Governments at all levels as she is 'on the ground' in a remote community. She is married to Lenny Cooper, an Indigenous man and the other principal in Proper Way consultants and has an Arrennte son (central desert) giving her a clear understanding of local cultures and expectations.

Lenny Cooper is an Aboriginal Australian who has spent the past six years working as the community liaison officer for a remote health organisation, setting up networks and relationships across the Central Desert region of Australia and further afield. He has been the liaison person for all Indigenous courses nationally and worked with the Bush Support team to help deliver courses to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups right across Australia. Lenny has almost completed a cert4 in ATSI health practitioner, and holds diplomas in D&A work, case work, working with children and has family and contacts right across Australia. Among other things Lenny has worked as a Koori educator and house parent in Victoria and a case worker, children's services officer and community liaison officer in the NT. His experience in working in communities and talking to people about their needs and the value of programs is invaluable.

It is our desire to make a difference to the way many programs and projects are currently delivered and in doing so ensuring that as well as being ‘value for money’, such programs have a positive outcome for the intended client group.

It is a challenge to work in remote Australia, but the best way to achieve your goals and make the best of your available funds is to get it right the first time.
