I have provided specialist consulting services in these fields for over twenty years across Africa, Asia and Australia. I have also worked on and managed many global research, evaluation and knowledge management projects in these fields. I work extensively on public policy and the role of governments in fostering business growth, job creation, innovation, and economic development. I also work with business membership organisations and international donor and development organisations. I have taught and supervised post-graduate students and run specialised training programmes. I design development programmes, facilitate business advocacy processes and document best practices in these fields from around the world.
I am interested in how to create the conditions in which people, either as individuals or in groups, can take initiative in response to their needs and opportunities.
