Case Studies


Cabrini Health is a Roman Catholic, not-for-profit Healthcare provider in Melbourne, Australia, inspired by the spirit and vision of St. Frances Cabrini. What began as a small private hospital in 1948 has developed into a much larger, multi-facetted undertaking with two major hospitals, palliative and eldercare centres, a rehabilitation service, and both a biomedical engineering and a linen service – staffed by over four thousand employees. Mark Davis has been helping Board Members, Executives and Senior Managers explore the on-going significance to the organisation of the spirituality and ‘charism’ of their founding religious order – the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Baptcare is a not-for-profit social care organisation based in Victoria and Tasmania. It emerged as an amalgamation of local initiatives undertaken independent Baptist churches over the last seventy years, becoming the primary focus of practical help for the vulnerable and marginalized by the Baptist tradition of Christianity in that part of Australia. Mark Davis has been assisting Mission Development at Baptcare by devising and delivering a conversational process for leaders in the organisation so that they can explore and embrace the on-going significance of the religious tradition from which it emerged.

Since 2007, Mark Davis has been assisting in the development and delivery of a strategic plan for the future of Northampton Roman Catholic Diocese. Under the leadership and vision of Bishop Peter Doyle, the ‘Walking Humbly’ process has provided a robust framework for the thoughtful development of the diocese in the light of changing contemporary circumstances. Part of our contribution has been the creation of resources and processes to encourage wider participation in and ownership of the mission of the diocese, through, for example, ‘The Micah Conversation’ and ‘Pathways of Formation’.

Mark Davis has a long history of involvement with the Carmelite Orders as facilitator, consultant and trainer. Fifteen years ago he was honoured to be invited to facilitate the Provincial Chapter of the Anglo-Irish Province of the Discalced Carmelite Friars – the first lay person in their long history. Since that time he has been engaged by the Province in a number of other capacities, in the UK, Ireland and Australia. This has seen him working not only with the friars but also Carmelite sisters and lay members of the Carmelite Secular Order.
