Our story

Banner - Individuals .png

Sustainable Shift program was born from a partnership between the Founders of Bluebird Leadership and 3P Impact


Cherry and Alan came together as co-conveners of the Australian hub of the community group Inner Development Goals (IDGs). The global IDG community was created after seeing slow progress towards achieving UNSDGs (United Nations Sustainable Development Goals), and identified human contributing factors; how we all think, connect and act.


Our mission is to equip your leaders with the mindset, knowledge, and capabilities required to drive positive, lasting change towards sustainability and responsible business practices.
