  • Jacinta is a thoughtful and empathetic facilitator, whose insights and advice I’ve appreciated as both a fellow practitioner and trainer. She’s a great story teller who instinctively knows how to see things from a range of perspectives. Jacinta has a great energy, and injects humour and fun into her practice – your time with her will fly! She brings unique insights and perspective from her client-side experience to her consultancy practice. I recommend Jacinta to anyone looking to energise and enthuse their teams, communities and project.
    Tanya Burdett, Director, Burdett Associates Pty Ltd (Australia), Essential Planning Ltd (UK)
  • I really enjoyed working with Jacinta to develop our partnership to build understanding between bike riders and taxi drivers. She invests the time needed for partners to get to know each other while moving quickly to take advantage of opportunities when they crop up. I particularly appreciated the strategic perspective she brought to a critical behaviour change initiative.
    Georgia Halliday, (former) Senior Advisor, Public Affairs, Victorian Taxi Association
  • As a colleague of Jacinta’s, I greatly appreciated her leadership in partnering and engagement. Her enthusiasm and readiness to question pre-existing methods greatly helped our team to re-conceptualise our own work engaging with international stakeholders.
    Douglas Proctor, Director International Affairs, University College Dublin
  • We had the pleasure of working with Jacinta at a policy and research workshop. Jacinta has a refreshing style which is open and engaging, and as support facilitators we appreciated her effort to ensure we were well-briefed and clear about the session's approach and objectives. Cross-disciplinary workshops can be tricky, and Jacinta navigated the complex content and diverse views in the room with confidence. We particularly valued her willingness to respond to suggestions and to actively engage with both her collaborators and the workshop participants to make sure the experience was positive for everyone. We’d be delighted to work with her again.
    Allison Hornery, Director, Cofluence
  • Jacinta was a key ingredient in the development of our ESTEME partnership when she was at the University of Melbourne. She provided the structure and guidance to our partnership consultant and I continue to appreciate being able to draw on her expertise regularly as our partnership matures. She has empowered us to develop clear objectives and measurements for a key project to strengthen teacher’s skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. I highly recommend Jacinta as a partnership consultant.
    Tracy Hammill, Principal, Yarra Primary School
  • I’ve enjoyed working with Jacinta as a colleague and stakeholder. She has an intuitive ability to quickly see an issue from others’ perspectives. Her enthusiasm is second to none and is key to her success in bringing both sceptics and advocates with her when championing a new approach or idea. An influential communicator, Jacinta successfully builds the capacity of both leaders and colleagues, resulting in lasting cultural change.
    Anita Hopkins, Executive Officer, Jack Brokhoff Foundation
  • Jacinta is an excellent intitiator and driver of ideas. She seeks out and builds the relationships and partnerships needed to develop and deliver ideas into concrete results. In the case of working with her through Alzheimer's Australia Vic she made many things possible that have enabled us to improve our services, making a difference to the lives of people living with dementia and their carers. I wish her every success in her consultancy.
    Christine Bolt, Corporate Communications Advisor at Alzheimer's Australia Vic
  • Jacinta Cubis is a natural communicator and talented facilitator who understands people and process. I was impressed to see her in action when I worked with her as a table facilitator while she ran a large cross-sectoral workshop. Jacinta has a gift for reading the room and perfectly balancing the needs of the participants with the outcomes required by the client. Her thorough preparation on the day allowed me to dedicate my time to my own table of participants and her flexibility of delivery meant she could accommodate feedback and recommendations of her table facilitators and and steer the process to a successful conclusion.
    Vicky Darling, Director, Kinsugi Alliance

    Christine Bolt, Corporate Communications Advisor at Alzheimer's Australia Vic
  • Jacinta is as enthusiastic, creative and lateral thinker. These skills combined with her natural communication and relationship building skills ultimately result in stronger and more meaningful partnerships.
