I specialise in the design and build of community enterprises that drive and thrive within the New Economy. I draw on the principles of deep ecology to work with innovators and change makers within community groups and organisations to build cooperative, ethical and local community owned enterprises.
I am a business and finance consultant with 20 years of experience working within the Banking and Social Enterprise sectors. I am passionate about supporting the creation of a world that is fair, just, sustainable and fun to live in. I strongly believe that this is possible through the development of a New Economy – one that puts the planet and the people at the centre. To that end, I am currently engaged in research work in the field of ecological economics and also exploring the potential of complementary, community currencies for social reform.
I hold a Masters in Sustainability and Social Change, Grad Cert in Social Impact and a Professional Qualification in Management Accounting.
