Thinker, doer, iconoclast, professional loudmouth.
Also organisational comms guy, design thinker, problem solver, user experience and service designer, collaborator, sketchnoter. Open government advocate. TEDizen and TEDxCanberra organiser. Speaker. Husband. Dad. WoW player. Crossfitter. Rugby tragic.
I'm the Founder at acidlabs, a small (but very good) design thinking, communications and experience design consultancy based in Canberra, Australia; we work with clients around the world on solving wicked problems, designing and building great policy, products and services, and building skills in thinking differently.
I'm known to most as "trib". Feel free to use it.
Let's change education to focus on context, not facts. In a connected world, facts are trivial to discover; it's placing them in a nuanced understanding of the globe that's the key.
I want organisations of all sizes to switch their focus to valuing knowledge work rather than assuming it just is. Business needs to provide employees interesting and meaningful work, a workplace where staff can enjoy what they do, adopt a culture and philosophy that treats people as humans and work as having meaning and most importantly provide managers who will lead staff on a journey to something better rather than just put ducks in a row.

Ballroom dancing (but I'm out of practice) and cooking.
Ideas are the heart of everything human. Making them bear fruit and become things is what excites me. My involvement in TED as an attendee and TEDx organiser lets me be a part of that.
