Jennifer Croes has been a consultant with the Institute for Sustainable Futures for many years. She worked for us on the World Wide Views project. Her wide experience with WWF and other NGOs was extremely useful to us with the organisation and the effectiveness of a major citizens consultation project in regards to global warming. She has continued that work in a range of capacities including support for wildlife. She is incredibly well-organised, has great interpersonal skills and is highly knowledgeable regarding a range of nature conservation and environmental issues. She would be an asset to any campaign, NGO or government/industry sponsored program in relation to environment and nature conservation issues.Prof. Stuart White
Jennifer has a great flair for project management based on her attention to detail and keen sense of social intuition and engagement. She has a sharp mind and a sharp wit, and is a delight to work with.Mike Roache
I worked with Jenn on an organisation design and change managment project for a large consumer goods wholesaler in New Zealand. I found Jenn to be very hard working and practical and particularly strong in managing client relationships whilst at Accenture. She was an asset to the team and I would recommend her as a consultant, particularly where strong people skills are required.Richard Clarke
I have had the pleasure to work with Jennifer during her time at Rainforest Rescue. Jennifer is a consummate and passionate professional, and is excellent at her craft. She is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to all things to do with conservation. Along the way she’s ready to mix things up and get creative to get the best result possible for the client. Our collaboration on the Save the Cassowary campaign received positive feedback and excellent media exposure.
Jennifer has the ability to take complicated ideas and information and craft them into elegant, easy-to-understand messages. Excellent Project Manager. Great interviewer. Terrific collaborator and a treat to work with.Richard Fine
I was fortunate to have worked alongside Jenn during my time as Fundraising Manager at Rainforest Rescue. She is a very driven and passionate individual with a wealth of knowledge and experience in conservation and project management. Her leadership on the Save the Cassowary Campaign resulted in a highly positive outcome for the organisation and for the Cassowary! Jenn is a great collaborator who excels at developing and maintaining relationships with clients and donors. Her positive ‘can do’ approach is what I admire the most about her and she would be a wonderful asset to any organisation.Erryn Stephens
I have known Jennifer Croes for over 10 years. I first met Jenn through the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS). Jenn was instrumental in arranging many fundraising events, all which were a great success through her hard work and dedication to BOS. As a volunteer with BOS, Jenn was also involved with the coordination of an enrichment program at the Nyaru Menteng orangutan sanctuary in East Kalimantan. During her time at the sanctuary she managed ground staff, office staff and also helped develop an on-going program of enrichment and building work and liaising with local communities in implementing conservation programs. Without her dedication, this program would not have been a success.Sue Floyed
Jennifer has great passion for and understanding of the natural world. She never hesitated to engage positively, willingly and enthusiastically with members of community, our staff and Traditional Owners on country. She is adaptable, clever and innovative. Lucky for us, she also knows how to think outside the box! As an Aboriginal corporation, we partnered with a conservation not forprofit organisation to raise awareness and work towards common goals to look after our important Cassowaries (Gunduy). We worked together to rehabilitate Gunduy habitat, badly impacted by cyclones and invasive weeds support the ‘Save the Cassowary Campaign’. This was possible through Jennifer’s partnership building efforts with us.Whitney Rassip - Djiru Traditional Owner, Karman Lippitt - Indigenous Protected Area Coordinator and Nina Dawson - Biodiversity coordinator
Jennifer was a recipient of the Dunlop Fellowship for the Asialink Leaders Program in 2014. Jennifer was selected for her potential to contribute to Asia-Australia engagement by drawing upon her knowledge and passion for conservation. Throughout the nine months, Jennifer was a huge asset to the program, always thinking outside the box, contributing and challenging perspectives.
As part of the program, Jennifer completed a project that involved producing an important video to educate Australians on the waste problem in Bali, a major tourist destination for Australians. She displayed a strong ability to establish and expand her networks amongst Asia-skilled Australians and in the region. I would recommend Jennifer as someone to work with for her dedication, inquiring mind and great energy.May Liak
