Our Wins

Over the years we have had the privilege of working with some amazing talent in the top end. Below you can read some of our wins - stories from people we have helped along the way. 




“Thank you so much for organising the NAIDOC Week Story Time Session. Lauren our staff member looked after Ellie and her Grandmother Bernie and said that the session went really well and that everyone enjoyed it lots.

She also said that the story time books, songs and activities were perfect for our story time.  Everyone loved listening to Bernie talk about where she is from.

 Thank you so much for making NAIDOC Week Story Time such a special experience for our story time families. Hope to work with STARWIN on other projects in the future.” 










Naomi-Lee Weatherall-Fitz: AEIW Manunda Terrace Primary School, June 2019

"Hi Karina,

Although I unfortunately didn’t get to spend much time with the ladies weaving, I have heard nothing but great things about them!

The amount of resource theybrought to show the kids was amazing and the knowledge they shared was incredible. The students were not only able to participate in the weaving but also the colour making methods, which amazed them that these plants could produce these colours! All teachers that seen the weaving said that it was amazing and the students were really enjoying being able to be a part of it!

The ladies were awesome and I will be highly recommending them to whoever asks about weaving! We actually want to use them again somewhere down the track, which we will get in contact with you!

Please send my appreciation to the ladies and share that the students loved the weaving! And thank you so much Karina for helping arrange this and supporting our school event!"

Starwin Cultural Experience

Kim Amor: Sport & Rec Grants Management Workshop participant, 2018

"Huge thank you to Karina for the fantastic workshop today highlighting the easy and accessible grants and funding opportunities. Her clear and simple explanations and willingness to answer questions really simplified things and built the groups confidence to apply for funding via a huge range of providers. Thank you." 

Joanne Flanagan: Indigenous Mentoring Program participant, 2018

"Overall I found the experience rewarding. Karina Gray was my mentor and she was great – very accommodating with last minute changes and generous with her time.

Though I struggled with developing a career path, I benefitted from building and refining skills I already have. When things got difficult, Karina was the voice of reason.

No longer seeking to balance, but tilting to achieve best results for all.

Opportunity to refocus and determine what I really want to get out of what I do and what does not work for me. Thank you." 


Brad East: TalentEd camp participant, 2011

Beast"Starwin offered me one of my earliest cataclysmic moments in the form of the diversity represented in our sporting program, as a single-minded (and very consumed) basketballer, I got my first look into the lives and passions of people not-otherwise-sharing my own, and now years later I often wonder where I would be if I had realized later that there were other experiences out there. The humanism in my work comes directly from experiences such as these and I am always grateful I was able to start so young"

 Jessica Webster: NEAFL/ABC Media Personality

"With the aid of Starwin Management, I have since developed my experience and reputation to include MC and event speaker opportunities. I first came across Karina when I moved to Darwin in 2010 to start my journalism career. Karina’s experience in the Darwin sporting community helped developed my own networks to gain employment across print, television and radio. Starwin Management has also provided extensive project design consultation to help achieve my goal of self-publishing my first book and further consultancy in setting up my own freelance writing business in Brisbane.

My five-year relationship with Starwin Management has taken my career to places I never thought was possible. I now have the confidence and necessary tools to be able to achieve anything I set my mind on. Karina puts her heart and soul into everything she does which is a reflection on her professional integrity and passion for community development."

Darryl Miller: Indigenous elder & Australian Public Service Member

"I have known and worked with Karina for a number of years. I find Karina down to earth, sincere and someone who puts her heart and soul into her work to ensure it has a positive impact on people no matter who they are, where they come from or their background. Karina is professional and is able to engage and relate to people in any environment. When Karina sets her heart and mind to doing something you can be assured it will benefit the person or community involved."


Marty Atkins: Astral Contracting

"Hi Karina, just a short note to let you know that we were awarded the period contract again, thank you very much for your assistance with preparing the tender document it is very much appreciated."


Steve McGugan: Former BNT President
“Basketball NT contracted Starwin Management to address its review recommendations and prepare our business for the employment of an Executive Officer in late 2010. Starwin did an excellent job in this process and was very thorough in the transition and handover”

Jennifer Coombes: Tiwi Artist
“My favourite Starwin Moment was when I took my son Byron to the Starwin Shopfront & made his dreams come true – he met his idol Paddy Ryder from Essendon Bombers Football Club. The look on his face – priceless.”
