Principal’s Bio

Chris specialises in sustainable strategy, leadership, and harnessing purpose. He sees great beauty in constructive difference, and has dedicated his career to enhancing services which empower diverse communities.

During his ten-years of front-facing, senior management, and board experience within community services, Chris has been called upon to redesign services, spearhead strategic projects, and lead pivotal change.

He is interested in the clues and opportunities found in assumption, and the advantages, pitfalls, and necessity of bias across viewpoints, and intermingling strengths across perspectives. In application, he aligns objective, choice, and purpose.

He has a hungry curiosity, and enjoys a multi-disciplinary diet. He reads history, politics and speculative fiction, subscribes to Harvard Business Review and New Philosopher and, despite its healthy resistance, persists in his struggle with acquiring the German language. He studied insights into governance from a German and European perspective during a summer at the European Business School, and concluded his postgraduate studies with research into sustainability within Australian community-based initiatives.
