Educated originally in ecology and environmental forestry, Steve has previously held a large number of environmental and rural development positions in the UK and overseas. He founded Resources for Change in 1997 in response to changing approaches to sustainable development and stakeholder engagement, and since then has seen it through many changes, most recently its transition to being an employee owned company. Steve also focuses on business development and strategic planning, as well as running consultancy projects.
Steve’s individuality as a consultant lies in his ability to make the linkages between grassroots and strategic levels, and to contribute a unique mix of imagination and practicality. His work overseas (most recently Nepal and Bangladesh) enables him to bring new ideas and approaches into the R4C team. His specialisms include: participatory approaches to evaluation, sustainable development, stakeholder engagement methodologies and strategic environmental management.
Steve is also a member of CLA (the Country Land & Business Association) and ICOMOS UK (The International Council on Monuments & Sites UK). He is a founder member of NATUR (The Welsh Institute of Countryside Management and Conservation), a trustee of Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust and sits on the BMC (British Mountaineering Council) Access and Conservation committee.
