This is not that...

ThinkPlace is really excited to be launching CIPI: The Community for Innovation and Public Impact. And we would love you to be a part of it.

For more than a decade we’ve used our unique methodology to tackle the world’s most complex problems, taking a human-centred approach to creating positive change. We were recently named Social Change Maker of the Year in the Telstra Australian Business Awards. Now we want to share that expertise with you.

What is CIPI?

CIPI is a genuine community of people who are working to create positive change in the world. It spans across Government organisations, NGO’s and innovative businesses.

It seeks to bring together those who are working to improve people’s lives and create positive impact at a systems level.

The makers and the doers who are putting people at the heart of their design process. Driving new processes, new organisation structures, new ways of delivering services, new public health interventions…

Why join CIPI?

As a member of CIPI you won’t be subjected to endless spam about things that don’t interest you.



John Fowlie, CIPI
Darren Menachemson and Rodger Watson, CIPI
