Business School, University of Adelaide

I have two decades of experience creating environmental change, addressing climate futures and, leading programs that today create the conditions for the growth of sustainable organisations and societies.

I've worked extensively on environmental, social, community and business issues, at the international, national and local levels. This includes major programs and projects with leading national and international companies as well as directing international activities in senior roles.

My recent work with business includes managing the approval of a cutting edge $75 million sustainable housing development - Murraylands Life. This innovative project is one of several I have been involved with that are creating new benchmarks for affordable, low environmental impact, living.

I also played as a leading role in the successful bid to establish Adelaide as Australia's first Solar City (in collaboration with Origin Energy, BP Solar, ANZ, Lend Lease and other companies).

My PhD explores the impact of climate change on business strategy, culture and collaboration in two major international companies. I am also a lecturer, as well as designing and delivering the Adelaide University Masters of Carbon Management in Business course.
