Paul is the principal of Interface NRM, an environmental consultancy that specialises in connecting people with the networks, information and resources they need to improve decision-making in natural resource management. An ecologist by training, Paul has worked with CSIRO and the Resilience Alliance, coordinating ecological and multi-disciplinary research. He has a long standing interest in the application of resilience thinking to NRM issues; a topic on which he has edited a book and published several papers. In his previous roles with state agencies and the Goulburn Broken CMA he was involved in the development and implementation of regional catchment strategies, programs and incentive schemes. Paul is an experienced facilitator, trainer and communicator. He has developed and led training programs for a range of audiences including CMA staff and land managers. In his earlier career Paul worked as an extension officer, national parks ranger and public land manager. Coupled with experience gained from growing up on the family farm, these roles have given Paul a realistic grounding in the day-to-day challenges of natural resource management in rural landscapes.
