Nicole Lockwood, Independent Chair of the MNG Board, has been bringing her unique set of development and infrastructure insights to the Westport Taskforce, which is mapping out options for the 'inner harbour' at Fremantle, WA.
The Taskforce is preparing a report due out at the end of October that will include trade forecasts and scenarios for Fremantle, as well as Kwinana and Bunbury ports in Western Australia.
Ms Lockwood, who is the Independent Chair of Westport Taskforce, provides strategic advice to government and the private sector in the areas of regional development, infrastructure and stakeholder engagement as Director of Lockwood Advisory
"The report completes the first phase of our assignment, setting the scene in terms of the ports capacity and capabilities, and identifying where the constraints are," Ms Lockwood said.

MNG's CEO Scott Anderson completed his second CEO Sleepout raising funds and awareness for the homeless of Perth. Vinnies, The St Vincent de Paul Society of Australia, provide support for people in need and the CEO Sleepout is a highly successful fundraising event.
Scott said "the night started off warm however the temperature started to drop very quickly from around 9pm.
The cold night and lack of sleep is a small price to pay for the benefit of raising funds for this cause. It's a great feeling to be able to give back whilst promoting awareness to the plight of some in our community".
Scott is grateful for all the donations received so far and if you would like to make a donation to Scott, it's not too late! Follow the below link to make a donation.

It was a cold wintery day in the MNG Jandakot head office on Tuesday 12th of June when CEO Scott Anderson served up spicy pumpkin soup to staff in a bid to fundraise money for his upcoming Vinnies CEO Sleepout.
Next Thursday the 21st of June, Scott will be swapping home comforts and sleeping on a cardboard box with a sleeping bag at the WACA grounds to fundraise money and awareness for the homeless of Perth.
Staff generously made a note donation in exchange for soup, rolls, beef curry, butter chicken and rice and together raised $529 to add to Scotts tally.
Scott said the various reasons for homelessness is stark and with one of the main reasons being from domestic violence at 38%, this is quite alarming. One of the numbers that scares me most is the number of kids. Being a Dad of four this hits home and I just want to help bring awareness and raise money for this cause.

MNG have been long time advocates of the surveying and spatial industry through many organisations including educational institutions, government organisations and private groups. We believe that in nurturing these relationships this will strengthen the overall industry and profession. Over the past five years MNG have partnered with Landgate in their Fellowship Program and this month we warmly welcomed representatives from Landgate, WA along with their colleagues from Mongolia at the Agency for Land Administration and Management, Geodesy and Cartography. The group are on tour which focusses on supporting effective governance of land resources to deliver sustainable economic growth. The group is hosted by Landgate as part of the DFAT's sponsored Australia Fellowship Award.
As one of Australia's largest privately owned surveying business, MNG enjoy a strong relationship with Landgate in Western Australia. Landgate saw the importance of the MNG business and wanted to show the group how private enterprise interacts with themselves. MNG provided an overarching theme of data management, innovation, Private Enterprise and Landgate and demonstrated how they have developed their own internal systems to assist their land development clients through the process to gaining property titles. The group were intrigued to see our database management systems, including MNG Access, which facilitate the process in NLR drafting portal, and the lodgement of Deposited Plans. Furthermore MNGs capabilities with GIS, 3D visualisation along with the Hologram Studio captivated the group.
All participants enjoyed the day learning more of the land tenure system and MNG. CEO Scott Anderson thanked everyone for their participation and welcomes the next study tour.
