Consulting Services

“I believe that our questions are some of the greatest gifts we have to offer ourselves, the world and others. Questions are a mighty form of words. They are wellsprings of creativity and growth. Culturally we are far too focused on our competing answers, when all the while across our many chasms we are holding kindred longings and aspirations that could lead us into listening, friendship, communal pondering, shared life” Krista Tippett

I began my career as a consultant with the WaterWise Gold Coast program – working with schools, the hospitality and holiday park industries to help them conserve water and save on running costs. A number of manuals emerged from this and my work evolved into assisting Gold Coast Water with its award-winning 50-year Water Future blueprint.

I realised in those early days of consulting, that at the heart of my work was the power of questions and collaborative problem solving – to learn what my client’s greatest needs were and how we could work together to meet those needs as elegantly as possible.

For over 25 years I have worked with a wide variety of clients in the government, non-government, community and business sectors in the areas of:

  • Community engagement and community participation
