The next generation of support for local business and our community.
What is The Collective Impact?
An economic and social engine that builds on BDCU’s rich tradition of identifying and supporting the needs of local business, our communities, and helps to create social change across the Highlands and Tablelands.
BDCU supports the needs of our community today, but The Collective Impact will be the catalyst that creates a bright, bold future for our region tomorrow. A future of prosperity, opportunity, and diversity.
Our motivation for The Collective Impact is simple.
An engine to:
Foster greater wellbeing and prosperity in the community and collectively deliver more social impact.
Local business is the lifeblood of regional Australia.
When local business is doing well, our towns and people do well. As an integral part of the community, we’ve witnessed rapid change in the businesses and people that are the fabric of our community. The Collective Impact is designed to support those changing needs.
So whether you’re starting out, building and growing your business or looking to build a strategy to achieve your life goals, our team can help.
Mark has always championed his clients’ life goals and plans in his approach to supporting them with their life goals and dreams.
Mark has been in the finance industry for close to 20 years, and has lived in the highlands and tablelands for over a decade.
As your financial adviser, he can help you to build a sense of financial security whilst helping you to create opportunities for meaningful and enriching life experiences.
In an age where we all are working harder, Mark can help you to get the most from your individual financial situation which for him is the most satisfying part of the job.
Mark looks forward to helping you achieve your financial and lifestyle goals.

Community & Events Specialist
Ashley joined the BDCU team in 2019 after making the ‘Tree Change’ from Sydney. Having worked in a shared space herself and with a keen eye for design, Ashley was the perfect person to manage BDCU’s co-workspace environments in Bowral, Mittagong and Goulburn.
Ashley is committed to creating inspiring workspaces for collaboration and connection – and has witnessed the power of human connection made possible for remote workers and teams who would otherwise be isolated. She also understands the need for professional environments to reinforce credibility.
Ashley ensures The Collective Impact co-workspaces are much more than offices; offering community, and a unique sense of professionalism, energy, and belonging.
True to Ashley’s passion for bringing our co-workspace to life, she has hosted a vast variety of clients and events across the three sites – including everything from yoga and pop-up shops through to Pizza’n’Pitch nights for start-ups, and business seminars and networking events for marquee corporate customers.
Ashley delivers exceptional experiences for all her clients whether renting a hot desk for a day, or a permanent tenant. No matter your need, Ashley will tailor a solution for you.
