Director policy-words (policy, strategy, local and regional development)
Over nearly 40 years I’ve worked with communities, regions, towns, governments, businesses, organisations and individuals on a wide range of urban planning, regional development, public transport, tourism, arts-culture, economic and community development, infrastructure, governance and organisational challenges.
I’ve seen the benefits of governments, business, communities and stakeholders working together for the common good.
The ingredients for success, which I’m passionate about, are nurturing collaboration, encouraging creative ideas, communicating clearly, helping clients see the big picture, and simplifying complex issues. These lead to the development of sound policies, effective strategies and practical outcomes that make a difference.
