I am known for bringing a discerning view on the synergy between ecology, productivity and innovation. I have a knack for foreseeing opportunity, bringing seemingly disparate threads together to develop system solutions. My experience spans five continents working with businesses, large and small, academia, professional institutes and associations and government. My consulting career focuses on developing practical solutions to sustainability issues, from strategy to implementation. I have also been involved in the commercialization of innovative technologies in start-up companies. I have authored several books, guides and over 50 published articles in journals around the globe. I was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society (RSA) in 2001 for her innovation of the EnviroReady Report. This is a verification approach for ISO 14001 using professional accountants, which is described as option 3 in ISO 1400:2004.
I enjoy working with thinking people who are ready to dare conventionality and complacency surrounding current technology and management approaches to do better with less.

An idea worth spreading
Ecological literacy is uncommon. Mapping one's points of impact can show where up to 80% of our inefficiencies are with current technology. Good housekeeping can reduce these challenges by half. Can you imagine a tool to move Biomimmicry into the hands of small business where innovation can be accelerated...
I'm passionate about
Helping businesses large and small excel at doing better with less by emulating nature and understanding our inherent contract with nature, and iIlluminating policy makers and shakers to this process.
