Speaking to audiences around the world, from boardrooms to conventions, radio to social media. 

A Global Viewpoint to Address Global Issues

I'm a regular contributor to major publications and speak to an array of global audiences on issues of sustainability, geopolitics, communications, and societal change. 

My global career has taken me from Los Angeles to New York, Shanghai to Seoul to Melbourne. I've had the privilege of working with the United Nations, McKinsey, A.C. Nielsen, and as a consultant with BSR, the world’s largest sustainability-focused business network. A decade of experience living and working in Asia inspired me to found my own consultancy with a mission to help companies, governments, and individuals understand, adapt, and capitalise on the seismic shifts happening in the world today. ​


These experiences have all led to my unique perspectives on sustainability and how to communicate the topic in a way that's relatable. ​


What do I love talking to people about? A few of my favourite big ideas include:

  • Sustainability’s messed up, but here’s how to fix it

  • Why going green isn’t going to save us

  • Communicating your message (so people listen)

  • Creating a business for good

  • China: a global leader in sustainability


From keynotes to podcasts, TV interviews to panels, I'm always on the hunt for ways to share my refreshing, no-BS sustainability insights.
