Joseph has a bird's eye view of global happenings and finds joy in contextualising far-off developments at a local level.   He has a BS of International Studies from Monash  University  in Melbourne,   work experience writing for various local and international publications, and crafting brand strategies from startups to global consulting firms. He is fascinated by technological advances leading Smart City technology, clean energy, circular economy,  as well as developments in the  CSR space. He also likes to spend as much time as physically possible in the ocean and accidentally 'shakas' at inappropriate moments, fulfilling an  equilibrium    of   Australian stereotypes.

Joseph is an Australian writer, journalist and most of all a creative positive impact communicator. He employs the knowledge he has earned from  multiple stints living and working abroad and combines it with an ever-evolving theoretical backing.  Bringing to the table a world of intercultural experience and a deep knowledge of how to communicate complex issues succinctly, Joseph understands the value of connection.  It is the tool with which he has to drive significant change.

The Future of Sterkenburg

May 23, 2019, Medieval castle Sterkenburg innovates a new future

Historic sites struggle to find business models that protect and optimize their cultural heritage in a rapidly changing world. The owners of the medieval castle of Sterkenburg in Driebergen decided to take up this challenge, looking for new ways to reignite its economic and social value. They engaged a multidisciplinary group of sustainability experts from Except Integrated Sustainability, who developed a special program to help historic sites unearth their opportunities. The resulting roadmap delivers concrete, immediate cost savings in the short term, and new ways for the castle to play a role in both today’s, and tomorrow’s society.
