Having worked in the NGO and inter-governmental realms for many years, I have decided to become more active in the private sector - trying to deepen the understanding and practice with regard to sustainability. This is all helped by my proven track record of deeply understanding the issues, thinking analytically and putting lessons into operational practice. I remain deeply interested in strategic planning and evaluation, having led independent evaluations and programmatic planning exercises for the GEF, UNEP/GEF-Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, IFC, the IUCN, WWF, the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and numerous NGOs. I remain an active player in national and international policy forums including CBD, CITES, CMS and the UNFCCC. As a trained facilitator, I have successfully mediated negotiations on some of the most controversial topics in modern conservation. I continue to use these skills on a regular basis in all aspects of my work. I move with ease between the day-to-day realities and concerns of practitioners on the ground and the world of international policy and decision-makers. For many years I have been an active member of the IUCN's Commissions, specifically SSC, WCPA, CEESP and CEM. An accomplished speaker and writer, I have received many of the top awards in my field. But my current focus is on helping to bring about a paradigm shift in the current global business model and the ways in which it links to measuring, valuing and reporting on natural capital impacts. Specialties:Environmental Profit & Loss Accounting Corporate Sustainability Facilitating and mediating often controversial, technical negotiations. Public speaking and presentation of key material to policy and decision-makers. Chairing groups of all sizes to deliver tangible outputs and outcomes. Working from the local to the national to the regional to the global scales. Strong grasp on conservation theory and practice - knowing what works and what doesn't. Truly global in every respect.
