Experience

I provide a wide range of consulting, facilitation, training and research services, using my extensive skills and executive management experiences across a wide spectrum of government, commercial and nonprofit sector organisations. Having spent over 35 years in various senior and executive positions across these sectors, I am well positioned to provide extensive value-add to the organisations that I consult to, with a combination of extensive practical experience and supported by the rigour of formal academic qualifications.
  • Consulting
I provide consulting services in areas of strategy, risk management, governance, and change management. In support of these, I am a Fellow of Certified Practising Accountants Australia, Fellow of the Australian Institute of Management, Member of the Risk Management Institution of Australasia, and a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
  • Facilitation
I am an internationally accredited Action Learning Facilitator and the Senior Consultant and Head of Relationship Management & Program Delivery for Australia at Action Learning International, headquartered in the UK. This is supported by my membership of the Action Learning Action Research Association of Australia.
  • Training
I hold a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and have extensive experience in the design, development and delivery of accredited training programs within the Australian tertiary sector. I am currently a Facilitator and Training Consultant at the Australian Institute of Management Graduate School in their nationally acclaimed and accredited MBA program, where I deliver course content in Finance and Change Management.
  • Research
I am currently researching Change Management in the Australian Nonprofit Sector through a part-time PhD program. In this capacity I have presented at numerous international conferences and published in this area. This research has provided a very solid practical background in research methodologies that I have applied in some of my consulting work.
 
In recognition of this extensive experience and background, OPTIMUM NFP is currently an accredited consultant on the National Disability Services' (NDS) Good Governance Program Panel in NSW for the delivery of consulting services to this sector in areas of Governance, Risk Management, Stakeholder Engagement & Change Management, and Strategic Business Planning.
