Risk Indicators of Sister City Relationships
In 2021, EDA (Economic Development Australia) invited Craig to present a webinar "Evolving Sister City Relationships: How to Deal with Global Uncertainty."
In conjunction with the webinar, Craig prepared a report "The Top Five Risks, and What You Can Do About It" which is now downloadable from the link below.
If you're about to review or revitalise your sister city relationships, use our framework in the report to identify your own risk category, then incorporate what's relevant into your Project Scope or consultant's brief.DOWNLOAD

Prior to delegations and missions into Asia, Craig was engaged on each occasion to provide pre-departure, international diplomacy coaching for the Mayor of Longreach and his delegation team.
