About The Change Makers Tasmania

What we do

The Change Makers Tasmania is a social enterprise dedicated to lead a movement of positive change. We are an incubator of ideas and enterprises and supported on our lean philosophy, our enterprise lab is constantly testing new projects that will help our community and the leaders we work with innovate in business and think outside the box.

We create in-house projects like Business Voice, CHANGRS, Filmtroter and Meet me Unplugged, and also work with organisations to help them develop their own projects and ideas. We are great at strategy and co-creation applied to any kind of for profit or not for profit enterprise.

Our latest work done through our Business Voice co-consultancy enterprise include a 3 year strategic plan for the Tasmanian School Canteen Association, the architectural and environmental design strategy for Avansys Technological Institute, a communication and engagement strategy for the campaign Tassievore Eat Local Challenge, From Ideas to Action training for not for profits, among others.

What we stand for

We use the scientific approach: constantly experimenting in search for the best results and we achieve while having fun. We believe in the power of single actions towards social change.

What people we have worked with say about us

The Change Makers Tasmania were able to synthesise our ideas and break each idea down into easy-to-achieve, step-by-step componentry. The techniques were simple to follow but immensely helpful because they allowed us to start with broad ideas, then condense them in a targeted way. By accurately identifying our market and distilling the specifics of our product we could then move swiftly towards achieving our goals.
Gideon Cordover, Heart Foundation Tasmania
The lean thinking approach you took us through Marisol, was absolutely necessary and really helped us to view our business from a different perspective. It is so easy to get stuck ‘in’ the business and not look at what you are actually trying to achieve and how best to achieve it. This process has helped us to determine who are customers really are, and what job we are trying to help them get done! Perfect!
