Regional Economic Solutions (RES) services are enhanced by the company we keep.


Our primary long-term partner is Ausenco, a global engineering and project management company that works in the mining, oil, gas and other resource sectors.

The Ausenco-RES partnership has resulted in many jobs being created and sustained in Australia. One example was at Carrapateena in South Australia where we supported First Nations people transitioning into work and various supply chains at the OZ Minerals mine.

Other partnerships include Powerlink, who have expressed interest in connecting students to employment, and our legal partner McCullough Robertson.

Global Future Makers

Develop and implement sustainable and innovated energy, carbon and water solutions, with a focus on enhancing community resilience and in particular working with First Nations people to generate respect and recognition for Indigenous knowledge, linking old, new and unique opportunities as part of ensuring a circular economy approach. This includes sustainable energy and water approaches, food security opportunities, technology neutral project solutions, and interfacing between community, industry, research, technology providers and government. Critically, Global Future Makers is focused on the circular economy, ensuring clients recognise the potential asset value of all product/waste streams, while valuing and leveraging the extensive knowledge that sits within the community/company/client’s boundary.

Supply Nation

RES is certified with Supply Nation.

I have had the pleasure of working with Leann and RES more broadly for a number of years. During that time, I have always admired Leann’s enthusiasm, vision and commitment to a defined process to make change. Critical in all her work is engaging in culturally appropriate conversations with respect and dignity.
