What sort of change would you like to see in the world?

Higher levels of co-design, collaboration and design thinking in the delivery of goods and services by public authorities. Public service embodying a servant-leadership in a manner that is inclusive and participatory with a premium on authenticity, intrinsic motivation and inverted hierarchies. I am interested in extending these thoughts and intuitions into all working environments that require more than menial or manual repetition. I believe in the sanctity of the human being as a co-creator of this lived-world and wish to create opportunities where people can experience and extend towards the fullness of themselves.

What are you doing to achieve it? Are you working with a particular organisation or group? Are there any projects you're working on that you'd like to share?

I have been pushing like Prometheus for a decade against both State and Federal taxation hierarchies. Improving working processes and encouraging more collaborative approaches to administrative design, audits, and interactions with the public. It is time for a change for me. There is not a lot that can be done from inside the public service. I am at a stage where I have to get out. Possibly, pen a tome and influence from "outside-in" this would provide me with the ability to insert into multiple environments and stay fresh. The human contact is intrinsic to the work. Change through people. Change by building resilience in people's expectations of their own creative capacity. Change through asserting this resilience in moral courage and open communication with other stakeholders.

What are your favourite organisations, projects or campaigns that are making a positive impact in the world?

Mao Zedong - because he missed a real opportunity to remake the expectations of the Chinese people and revolutionise both the mode and manner of production in China. Arguably, he cleared the way for Deng Xioa-Ping with the horror of the Cultural Revolution, but there was so much more that could have been achieved by decentralising the Revolution and actually incorporating dissent into the creation of the New China.
