I'm an entrepreneur with a passion for diversity, innovation, environment and action and a background in science, finance and philosophy. I believe there is almost always a better way to do things, and I am thrilled to help clients to grasp the opportunities that lie in front of them.
I have lived and worked in most of the world's top thirty economies, and have advised hundreds of major companies and governments on major M&A transactions, strategic transformations, large infrastructure projects and the application of big data analytics to boardroom decisions.

In the words of Mike Baird, State Premier of NSW and one of Australia's most respected politicians: "Whether in Government or business, the daily challenge is how to deal with the short term crisis whilst balancing long term needs?

Change involves risk however it also may be the very reason that you remain in your job. A must for any manager, leader or Minister - compelling reading."

The best ideas are those that are brought to life, having real impact as a result. Through Pottinger Perspectives, we share our thinking on where the greatest opportunities lie, and how they can be unlocked.
