Leadership is the cornerstone in growing a globally sustainable future
What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?
Built my confidence to network with other Sustainable Leaders
Why are you passionate about sustainability? What was the moment or event that made you decide to become a 'change maker' in your field?
The moment I became a change maker was when the penny dropped that everything we do has an impact on our environment, and the time that best illustrates when this happened was when I was fishing and noticed an introduced species providing cover and food for fish. While in my regular line of work my job would be to remove this introduced plant, but the current role of this can not be discounted in the approach to returning our environment to a more natural state.
Why is leadership for sustainability important?
Leadership is the cornerstone in growing a globally sustainable future, we need direction and collaboration and that's what our leaders will provide.
What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?
The next step for me is to find the team of people who can help me achieve my vision, knowing where my strengths and weaknesses are more clearly. I need to find a few people to help me bridge those gaps and then initiate my project. I'm hoping to do this in the next couple of months.
