I love creating learning and skills growth opportunities for self-improvement and to enable others as a committed, practice-led professional. As Isaac Asimov said "“If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them” and “The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the most discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but 'That's funny...” My top strength, a love of learning pushes me to keep questioning how to create elite, effective, and evidence-based programs, to reduce the distance between the learning environment and the workplace. To lead through results in today's data driven minerals and energy exploration industry, we need to develop and access the best possible “how” through applied data science and neurodiversity approaches. Innovation often occurs around the edges and at boundaries. Some of my favourites are: research-implementation, mature business-startups, and geoscience-non technical including governance. Engage with me at Geo-Logic Consulting, and with Edin and I at Action Twelve. Recent programs delivered data science capability and created a future of learning pathway to enable organisational implementation for the changing future of work. Education is not something one can ever consider to be finished. Achievements include: - Developing innovative approaches for both business model and learning products - 95% Professional program participants agreed program delivered Learning Outcomes - 100% Executive program participants agreed program delivered Learning Outcomes - Delivered a learning model and flagship program as product innovator - Co-creation partnerships with Industry and Education (CSIRO, UWA and Curtin University, ATCO Australia, Alcoa of Australia, Rio Tinto, and Roy Hill) - Real, lasting, and tangible value return for you and your organisation I continually seek for ways to engage and give back, in my workplace, on campus, and through learned societies. I welcome your connection to my network.
