All we need to do is to have a piece of the path to the future. And that’s ours. And we polish that and we hone that. And we place that in the pathway that we are building. And as we build that pathway it changes us as the builders of that path and it also shapes the destination that we are going to.” – Dr Noel Nannup, Nyoongar Elder

Hi, I’m Jack. Thanks for arriving here.

I am a facilitator, writer, and teacher in service of equity and wellbeing between people, communities, and the planet.

I am a Senior Trainer at Berry Street, an Australian child and family services organisation, and a facilitator with the Benefit Mindset project.

In my approach to writing and practice I seek to be relational and compassionate. I pay particular attention to the evolving spaces between, integrating insights from diverse areas, including education, trauma, wellbeing, ecology, and systems change. 

Right now I am describing my piece of the path to the future as compassionate leadership in education.

You can read my latest writing here.

If you’d like to view my qualifications and experience, you can do so here.

Or if anything resonated with you, I’d welcome a conversation. You can get in touch with me here.

Travel well.

I acknowledge connection to country and the Elders of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation who are the traditional owners and custodians of the land, sky and waters where I work and live. I recognise that sovereignty was never ceded, land and people were unjustly and ruthlessly stolen, and truth-telling has not yet occured. I commit to listening and walking with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the realisation of the Uluru Statement from the Heart and a Treaty process.
