Local Content Advisers (LCAs) provide advisory and referral services to businesses in regional areas, supporting them to compete for State Government contracts. There are nine LCAs based in Regional Development Commissions throughout the State.
Dylan Heath- Kimberley Local Content Adviser
1. What drew you to the Local Content Adviser Role?
I’ve always been passionate about helping build stronger, more collaborative communities and knowing that regional businesses are part of the backbone of regional communities. This role seemed like a great way to contribute to the Kimberley.
Also, having previously worked in engineering/project management roles, I knew the tangible difference that a role like the Local Content Adviser could make in helping regional businesses participate in regional opportunities.
2. Tell us something interesting about yourself.
Previously I was a project engineer for a wave energy start-up company. It received a financial investment and moved to the United Kingdom. At this stage I’d moved to Broome, so for the wet season of 2017/2018 I was doing fly in-fly out from Broome to Wales. I got pretty good at international travel but it took a while to adjust to moving between 40⁰C and -4⁰C every three weeks.
3. What do you love about your region?
There is a pretty big list of answers to this question but the top few would have to be: incredible environment, vibrant culture, and genuine people and of course fishing and camping. It’s pretty hard to beat the complete lack of traffic lights too.
Dylan is based in the Kimberley Development Commission.
