webinars, conference recordings, documentaries


I regularly take part in conversations at online and offline policy, industry and community events, as well as on the small screen. At times, they are formal, others not. Sometimes I have a good hair day and a nice background, sometimes only one of these two things, and when I have none, it gets on Getty Images. Joke apart, I speak to help inform, stimulate new conversations and change mindsets. My favourite topics are sustainable, social and regenerative systems, economies, development and innovation.
