Improvement Resources + melanomaWA… the word is out! 

20150128 Impres

L-R: Martin Slabbert, Clint Heal, Hayden Ballantyne, Andy Bell, Sarah Coleman and Bonnie Stacey at the Announcement night

melanomaWA are proud to have developed a valuable partnership with Improvement Resources, so it is with great excitement that we can announce our next big step together.

In 2015, Improvement Resources will be our Major Corporate Sponsor!

The team at Improvement Resources first approached Clinton Heal in 2012 to understand how they could support his very important cause of melanoma support and awareness . They were immediately inspired by Clinton’s story and what he has been able to achieve since being diagnosed with melanoma, and were keen to get on board.

As two young, passionate and ambitious Western Australian organisations, there was an instant cultural fit and a partnership grew from there.

Three years on, Improvement Resources continue to generously support us and create opportunities to grow our partnership further. Their donations and business improvement expertise have helped us grow as an organisation, and allowed us to expand our support services and awareness.

melanomaWA are very grateful that Improvement Resources have given us the opportunity to dream bigger. Their hands on approach and solid commitment will help us achieve our goals, including minimising the devastating effects of melanoma in our community.

We are both extremely proud of what we have achieved together and look forward to even bigger things ahead!

Improvement Resources are a growing team of integrated consultants passionate about driving improvement in any situation, organisation or industry. With their head office located in Perth, the work they do expands across Australia, where their clients include a number of major mining, oil & gas, and manufacturing companies.

Having expertise and experience in engineering, business improvement and operational leadership, whatever the challenge, they work with clients to deliver fresh thinking that drives positive and sustainable change. Find out more at www.improvementresources.com.au
