Mark’s varied and vast experience working in the water industry with Councils across Queensland has provided him with the unique understanding of Council’s (and their employees) needs, and has enabled him to plan and develop strategies to identify opportunities for continuous improvement. He has developed excellent problem solving skills, a keen eye for detail, a practical hands-on approach to training and enjoys working with Council employees improve their skills in the water industry.

Mark has a passion to assist Indigenous Local Government Organisations and their staff in Cape York and Torres Strait to maximise their existing infrastructure, and to plan and develop future infrastructure. He believes that the three core elements to achieve this outcome are:

  • Engage with Council staff to discuss, explore and create opportunities for improvement.

  • Empower Council staff with confidence, trust and commitment necessary to effectively operate their infrastructure.

  • Elevate Council staff skills through practical hands-on training and skills development.

Mark genuinely believes that the correct operation of water and sewage infrastructure are a core feature of healthy communities. He has worked with indigenous communities for over 5 years, and has a deep level of understanding and respect for cultural protocols and customs. Mark looks forward to working with your organisation to improve the water health of your community.
