Social Collaboration Architect and Catalyst for Change
Civic & Social Organization | Melbourne Area, Australia, AU
I have been working with not-for-proﬁts and community organisations for close to 15 years - including almost four years at Greenpeace Australia Pacific where I worked in Communications and Public Engagement and was the Campaign Project Leader on the successful viral campaign against Nestle for deforestation.
In the last five years I have experienced the growing effectiveness of the web and social media to connect and enable communities to come together, collaborate, and take action on issues ranging from climate change to mental health and poverty to marriage equality.
The use of digital media and online platforms has been deeply integrated into my current projects as founder of Doing Something Good, host of The Collaboratory Melbourne and producer of the Gathering Unconference. My mission is to help people and organisations doing something good to realise the potential of the strategic use of the social web, emerging models for business and collaborative networked communities to build better futures for all, together.
A graduate of the School for Social Entrepreneurs program in 2011, I was named Melbourne Social Entrepreneur of the Year in 2012 and one of The Age's Melbourne Magazine Top 100 most "passionate, powerful and provocative personalities of 2012".
Specialties: Network weaving, strategic campaign design, digital communications and technology, facilitation, learning and development, project management, event planning, community building.
