About 361 Degrees

361 Degrees Stakeholder Engagement Services is the first company in Western Australian to receive B Corporation certification and is proud to be a founding partner of B Corp Australia and New Zealand.

361 Degrees has served the Western Australian community since 2006, providing stakeholder engagement and specialised training services to industry, government and the community sectors. Their services include strategic thinking and planning, stakeholder engagement and communications and project communication management services. 

The business operates under a unique model, where consultants freely associate and collaborate under a single mission; to be engaged in meaningful activities that build individual and organisational capacity to achieve positive social, economic and environmental change. People are at the core of the business philosophy and share a belief in the power of engagement, ideas, creativity and the value of exploring future possibilities.

The organisation regularly reinvents itself to reflect the skills, expertise and interests of its consultants. 361 Degrees also operates as a networked enterprise, using the benefits of technology to create virtual workspaces. There is no need for consultants to commute to an office and they organise their time to achieve an ideal work / life balance. Their virtual workspaces also reinforce their commitment to sustainable business practices by minimising our environmental footprint.

In their consulting and training activities, each consultant aims to build individual and organisational capacity. This is a key effectiveness measure that is evaluated at the conclusion of each engagement. By building this capacity, 361 Degrees seeks to make the world a better place by enhancing the interaction of stakeholders and organisations to enable more informed and improved decision making.

We sought B Corp certification because we know that our business model and approaches are different. B Corp certification acknowledges and reinforces this difference as a positive point of distinction. Certification also provides us with a clear set of goals and measures to work towards to maximise our positive impact.

The Change We Seek®

A world where stakeholders can engage in meaningful dialogue and activity to explore innovative and alternative futures without being overwhelmed by complexity.

What makes us a better company?
