A Clarion Call is ‘a strongly expressed demand or call to action’... It’s a clear and pure voice that is hard to ignore.

Clarion Call facilitates and enables people who are coming together to drive and support change in complex issues.

About Us

We broker conversations and facilitate processes that galvanise efforts and achieve change.

Our approach builds on strengths and adapts to culture and context to build a shared way forward into an unknown future.

This gives clear direction for collective action… your Clarion Call.

What we do

We bring our depth of experience from work on-the-ground across Australia to enable you to..

  • Map future horizons to define how to get to an unknown future.
  • Build governance for collaboration to govern for purpose.
  • Lead and share power for purpose, to know when to step up and when to get out of the way.
  • Understand and shift systems, to disrupt patterns that hold problems in place.
  • Develop ways to work with diversity to embrace different world views.
  • Collaborate across cultures and contexts to build a shared way forward.
  • Address issues through mediation and negotiation to go forward together

All of our work respects the First Nations people of Australia.

Our Work

We use skills in facilitation, deep learning and mediation to work on the ‘how to change’ in community, systems and across organisational boundaries.

Sharon has worked with us in Better Together Swan Hill to support our collective impact work. She has helped us understand not only what this is but how to do it. Sharon brings deep community based experience, authenticity and humour to her work. This along with excellent facilitation and people skills means that we have been able to make the most of our time with her. We recommend her highly for support of any collaboration tackling complex social problems.

George MudfordGeneral Manager (Southern Mallee) Mallee Family Care

Sharon has exceptional facilitation skills. We worked together on an international project that involved a wide range of perspectives. Sharon took a leadership role that gave space for different experiences to be heard and helped us all uncover commonalities that could help others in similar situations. She continued to lead this project after we had returned to our countries so we could produce a great outcome.

Ben Birks AngDeputy Executive Director - Programmes at New Zealand Drug Foundation

Sharon is such an empathetic practitioner. She brings the complexity of collective impact to life with clarity, authenticity and a sense of humour. The group we worked with have the appetite to try it, and Sharon made it all seem 'do-able'.
