Speech bubbleWhat could I do for you?

I can provide assistance in three key areas:


Strategy and policy

Low energy buildings – and the knowledge and processes involved in creating them – should become the norm.

Most of the people and organisations I encounter have an awareness of low energy buildings and sustainability issues, but as this is not their core competence their knowledge can often be incomplete.

This is where I can help:

Communication and interpersonal skills are a key part of my portfolio – as is knowing what's needed from whom, getting those people on board and getting the best out of them.  


The gap between low energy building aspirations and the disappointing reality is one that organisations want to get to grips with. Then, communication and continual development of best practice is needed to share knowledge of what works well and make what works well work even better.

I deliver training on a bespoke basis, or as one of the team of experienced, hands-on Green Stripes trainers.  

Public speaking

The benefits of low energy buildings are not on everyone's radar. Engaging internal and external stakeholders is a prerequisite to gaining their full commitment and collaboration – and ultimate success. I am often asked to make presentations to conferences and run workshops on meeting the challenge of delivering low energy buildings.

Here's just a sample of the audiences and topics I have worked with over the last couple of years:
