As an independent parks and open spaces expert, I bring a fresh perspective to your organisation. I can solve your problem or complete your project, while saving you staff resources.
A major advantage that I bring to the table, especially when consulting in the area of operations, is that I’ve worked extensively in the industry in both the public and private sectors. I have seen things from both sides of the fence, and the advice I provide is based on practical hands-on experience.
I have a particular strength in the area of operations. I can cast a fresh pair of eyes over your parks and grounds maintenance operations, practices, and systems. I help to problem-solve, and assist with operations planning and mediation.
Investigation and Reporting
I provide independent advice drawing on my extensive horticultural, parks, and recreation knowledge and experience. I investigate and report on issues important to your business, stakeholders, and your community.
Inspections and audits
I provide an objective independent examination of your parks and open spaces services and assets. I undertake park audits. I undertake asset data collection and condition grading assessments.
Training and workplace consultation
I provide customised training solutions. I mentor and consult with staff to understand their needs, wants, perceived barriers, and enablers to work.
I prepare management plans to guide the use, development, and management of your parks and open spaces. I consult with user groups, and facilitate workshops.
