Founded by Lea Corbett at the end of 2018, the driving concept behind Map consulting group is to assist NFPs to build capability and impact, drawing on the vast treasure trove of skills, experience, understanding and even wisdom accumulated by older professionals over the course of their diverse careers.
Surveys of NFPs, the peak organisations in the sector, and champions like Susan Pascoe AM (past ACNC Commissioner) have consistently identified the need to strengthen capability and capacity in NFPs in a range of areas. Leaders in the sector know that this is needed if they are to survive and thrive in an environment of rapid change and growing regulatory, funding and social pressures.
The upshot …
There are many for-purpose organisations that want access to highly experienced senior consultants, but at an affordable price. There are many highly qualified professionals, who have worked in senior and executive roles in the public, private or not for profit sectors (often all three), who maintain the currency of their professional knowledge and networks, and who are eager to help for-purpose organisations to thrive.

And just in case you were wondering, Map’s logo is a depiction of tree rings. (No, it’s not a finger print!) It’s a symbol of the layers of deep experience and embedded knowledge that Map consulting group members have to offer our clients.
A tree’s growth rings provide a record of how it has successfully adapted to varying conditions and thrived in the face of challenges and change over the years.
