Gravitate is a leading consulting firm specialising in Corporate Social Responsibility solutions.

Gravitate was formed to assist businesses to maximise their impact within the community. Often, businesses can have the best intentions when it comes to doing great things, although without a well-designed strategy it can limit the overall community impact they have. We help design a strategy and implementation plan to help your organisation really impact the community.

At the helm is Gravitate’s director Ross Wait, whose passion for sport, social impact and engaging the community has driven Ross’s career to date.

Ross has travelled across the world spending time with international organisations including the Olympic Organising Committee, Red Bull London, New York Giants, Arsenal Football Club and the Port Adelaide Football Club, to understand the social impact of brands, athletes and talent in the community.

Ross quickly identified the synergy between sport and education, and how designing programs which link to the curriculum can complement quality learning. With a drive to assist those less fortunate and to inspire young people to make good choices, Ross has designed and delivered award-winning initiatives to corporate businesses, universities, schools, and community settings over the last 15 years. He has also worked in Local, State and Federal Government and has strong knowledge across all layers of Government.

One of the guiding quotes driving Gravitate’s work to date is:

“A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination.”

Nelson Mandela

This quote highlights the intent of most business owners that have great intentions to help others less fortunate than themselves. Gravitate can help you do this.

Having worked with Ross over many years we have achieved many special things together.

I have always been impressed with Ross’s determination for Reconciliation and building respect and trust between Aboriginal people and non-Aboriginal people. This encompassed all our work together with an uncompromising focus on Reconciliation.

Ross is highly strategic and has foresight for innovation and thinking in advance of what the current trends are. He is constantly wanting to push the boundaries of what is possible to impact the community on a large scale.
