About Me


I make collaborations work.


To me collaboration is a core principle of life. Failing to collaborate on solving our important problems violates this principle, so I have dedicated my career to enabling collaboration within complexity, uncertainty and difference to unlock the power of human potential.

I am at my best when storytelling, explicating, encouraging and inspiring diverse perspectives to combine their capabilities to solve important and valuable challenges.

Throughout my varied career in law, technology businesses and non-profits I have routinely chosen the path of collaboration to provide significant solutions. I have experienced building (and failing to build) collective ownership to solve complexity.

I enjoy untangling these often intricate situations, unpacking things to their core components to bring everyone to the same level. This creates an opportunity for collaborative enquiry about the best way to rearrange things for the better, or to achieve something more. I like to involve relevant minds in uncovering practical ways that not only solve the problem, but continue binding them together for future projects, finding common ground on which to build alignment and antifragile structures.

I do this specifically with safety and controls in mind so that collaborators have the toolts to maintain direction and protect  their future options.

I am great at working with your [unique] people and stakeholders, communicating by analogy, example and visualisation to expand collective understanding and commitment.

I find the data, strategy, plans and execution styles that suit your purpose, and I have the patience to work urgently over the long term.

I’m skilled at delivering intellectually and operationally complex projects, using Collaboration Maps to organise and mobilise multi-disciplinary, multicultural & multinational teams.
