About Me

The Impact Spender's Manifesto:

"We believe that spending is the most powerful force for change in the world. We know that every dollar we spend, changes the world… for better or for worse.

We spend our time and our money consciously and with good intent. We see the people behind the stuff.

We see stakeholders as interdependent, not independent. We use our creativity to find solutions that benefit all stakeholders. We do not trade off one stakeholder’s interests against another’s.

We understand that savings are scarce but impact is abundant. When we spend for impact we simply get more bang for our buck.

We listen to our suppliers and our providers with curiosity and appreciation. We accept that the customer is not always right.

We work in people chains, not supply chains. We acknowledge that through our spending our actions and behaviours are magnified and far-reaching.

We cultivate diversity. We value differences. We like doing business with unlike-minded people. Bigger is not always better and smaller is sometimes smarter.

We measure value not just in having, but in giving. We buy more than just goods and services… we are buying a better world with a brighter future."

July 2016 - Present | Impact has no boundaries

We help people in business re-imagine workplace spending as a force for social and environmental change.

Facilitator and Coach

The Trusted Negotiator

October 2015 - Present | Melbourne

I am passionate about the abundance of value that exists in business to business relationships.

But I believe that billions, if not, trillions of dollars of value still remains unrealised by organisations and their suppliers, due to a fundamental lack of trust in their relationships.

I joined The Trusted Negotiator to help organisations unlock this value.

As an experienced leader, facilitator and coach, I help businesses and individuals in supplier facing roles, create more value for all their stakeholders, by applying the principles of Conscious Capitalism to their most important supplier relationships.
