Geoff Batkin recently celebrated 20 years at the helm of Wesley Mission Queensland, one of the state’s largest not for profits.

Batkin has worked in the not-for-profit sector for almost 40 years, and has grown Wesley Mission Queensland into an organisation which has diversified into community services, disability and mental health services and retirement living communities. 

He joined the organisation in 1997, and prior to this spent 11 years as the director of corporate services for UnitingCare Burnside, overseeing the organisation’s expansion throughout regional New South Wales.

In this week’s Changemaker, Batkin talks about how he got involved in the not-for-profit sector, how his Christian faith affects the work that he does, and the surprise party that was organised to celebrate his 20 years at Wesley Mission Queensland.
