I love change. To me, change means development, improvement, and progression. I especially love change in the context of stability and gratitude: knowing the difference between baby and bathwater, as it were.
I help people make good change at work, by providing mentoring, professional development support and coaching. I help organisations with strategy, values and leadership challenges.
I help public sector and non-Government organisations make good social change, through good social marketing and behaviour change practice. I’m the Chair of the New Zealand Social Marketing Network, and a member of the Board of the Australian Association of Social Marketing.
And I do what I can to contribute to good change in the world, through a social enterprise, The Good Registry, through my professional and voluntary Board roles (the Digital Media Trust, WREDA, and the Wellington Stadium Trust), and through mentoring and voluntary work with lots of good groups and people.
If you think I can help you with any of these things you can find me through LinkedIn.
This blog site is a collection of some things I’ve written about good change at work, good social change, and good change in the world. If you’d like to contribute your thoughts on any of these topics, please do comment, or share a story of your own.
If you’re wondering, by the way, about the significance of “Portchester”, it’s where I was born. As Kierkegard said, life can only be understood backwards (although it must be lived forwards).
