Introducing Inspiring Projects

About little about us ...

Our Mission

We provide the means to help organisations improve their capability to realise value from their investments in projects and associated change initiatives.

What We Do

Aspire Australasia works closely with organisations - government, public and private companies, not for profit organisations - to help them realise their objectives through the professional development of their knowledge workers and the strengthening of their governance and management processes.

We help individuals to broaden their skillsets and marketability through training and certification in a wide range of leading and best practice methodologies, and through competency assessment.

We also provide services and support to current and potential Accredited Training Organisations, affiliates and resellers of best practice training.

History

Aspire Australasia Pty Ltd was founded in 2006 to be the professional development arm of the Goal Group of companies. In the following years, Aspire Australasia assisted Goal Professional Services Pty Ltd to become an Accredited Training Organisation, initially offering PRINCE2, then adding additional products as market demand emerged. Aspire Australasia also drove the development of a network of affiliated training organisations across Australasia and Africa, and the commercialisation of its courseware development capability.

In 2012, the decision was made to move the ATO licence to Aspire Australasia. We established 'Inspiring Projects' as the ATO's new trading name. Since then, we have doubled the number of products offered by Inspiring Projects, and established further professional relationships across New Zealand, South Africa and Europe. Aspire Australasia continues to offer consulting services in the project management space.
