Phillip leads complex district and regional plan reviews, and has a particular talent for large development projects and big picture strategy. He helps teams develop effective policy that really works, and is enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge. Phillip is also a successful children’s book author, supports community biodiversity groups in the Wairarapa and promotes up-cycling as a way to care for the environment (his family sometimes draws the line at tip diving).
Two brains thinking together are at least three times smarter than one brain thinking on its own. I love the buzz of working with other people to discover and develop great ideas and solutions that are far better than any one of us could come up with on our own.
