My work is about communicating new ideas and helping turn them into realities
I used to work as a supply chain consultant in factories, mines and warehouses, getting new systems used by busy people.
I recognised the power of the human factor in successful innovation – the critical importance of communications and relationships.
For a time I was a professional coach and trainer, helping business
managers turn their plans into effective team action.
Now I write for a living – which gives me freedom to travel. I specialise in pitching new ideas for innovative businesses, including web content and copy.
I’m an ideas junkie, combining new developments with old wisdom to deliver smarter solutions
I – mostly – live in the hills outside Melbourne (Australia, not Canada) and do regular road trips to explore the beauty of the outback.
I have a wonderful husband, a forest garden full of birds and an amazing coworking community.
I’ve been an owner builder, hands on for years in building our home in the hills and its bird-friendly garden.
I’m addicted to the written word, new ideas and the power of story telling.
I read sci fi, fantasy, innovation, sustainability, business development and communication in about equal amounts.
I’m hooked on the opportunity side of sustainability
I discovered the wealth positive, inspiring solutions side of sustainability back in 2002 when I first read Natural Capitalism.
I’ve been writing on sustainability, opportunity and innovation for years.
In 2009, I wrote The Deep Green Profit Handbook as a short guide to the hidden business opportunities of sustainability.
I blog and speak about sustainability, opportunity,innovation delivery and regenerative business on social media.
