Clients

Based in Sydney, Australia, I am an internationally experienced consultant who has advised multinational corporations and national and state governments on a range of complex and sensitive issues.  Because of the sensitive nature of many of the projects I have worked on, I do not list the names of clients on this website. Needless to say, the strategies and programs I design and execute for clients are tailored to their specific needs, whilst I always maintain the highest standards of client-confidentiality. I am happy to introduce prospective clients to current and past clients willing to speak about my work for them.

In the meantime, here's a sample of the types of projects I have worked on during my 35+ years career:
