DOES YOUR ORGANISATION NEED SOME ASSISTANCE?
I would love to work with you as I am passionate about the benefits that organisations contribute to society.
I specialise in working with Incorporated Associations / Not-for-Profit organisations and have a high level of understanding of the concept of NFP’s and the environment in which they operate.
My background and depth of experience provides me with an all-encompassing understanding and knowledge of organisational issues.
I believe in taking an innovative and creative approach which has brought success to organisations I have both provided services to and worked with. My background with Not For Profit/ Incorporated organisations spans start-up, development, structure, management, financial sustainability and governance.
I have developed successful organisational structures for both new and existing Not for Profit Organisations. Strategic Development workshops, advice to boards and committees on governance issues and strategic planning are a significant part of the service provided by JanWatt.Com.

COMMUNITY PROJECTS ON YOUR LIST?
Community Development & Renewal are areas in which I have specialised in for many years and also have post graduate qualifications in.
My passion is assisting community organisations and Government to develop and deliver their goals – for example – community engagement, community planning, capacity development or community renewal and place making.
I had significant involvement with the Mary Valley Community (Queensland, Australia) at a community and government level covering advocacy for human rights, social and economic impact issues and community renewal and have presented papers at various conferences on associated topics. I invited Peter Kenyon, community revitalisation specialist, to work with the Mary Valley community (post the Traveston Crossing Dam overturning by the Federal Government) and was privileged to work with him on the Community Renewal that ensued.
My understanding of both community and Government allows me to provide a positive commitment to any community I work with.

Arts & Culture
CAN I HELP YOU WITH AN ARTS PROJECT OR ADVOCATE ON YOUR BEHALF?
My background in Arts and Culture includes personal, community and government and provides a depth of experience and knowledge that allows me to work within the sector and communicate effectively at all levels of government.
I develop project concepts for clients, work with artsworkers, liaise with Government and bring together a broad range of stakeholders where necessary to progress projects.
Experience includes positions such as Chairman of a Regional Arts Development Fund for eight years and working with communities and arts workers to develop local and regional projects. Member of the Queensland Local Government Arts and Cultural Reference Group working at a high strategic level for the arts and cultural sector across Queensland. I believe my understanding of Government processes is a valuable asset to an organisation or project’s success.
Jan’s passion, commitment and professionalism are simply exceptional. Whatever community Jan resides in, and whatever work areas Jan engages in, will be so much richer because of Jan’s involvement, personal skills and generosity of spirite.”
