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.

Sterkenburg Overmorgen

Mei 23, 2019, Middeleeuws kasteel Sterkenburg innoveert een nieuwe toekomst

Veel historische erfgoed in Nederland staat voor de uitdaging om businessmodellen te vinden die hun culturele erfgoed beschermt en optimaliseert in deze snel veranderende wereld. De eigenaren van het Middeleeuwse kasteel Sterkenburg in Driebergen besloten om die uitdaging aan te gaan. Ze gingen op zoek naar nieuwe manieren om de economische en sociale waarde van hun erfgoed nieuw leven in te blazen. Hiervoor brachten ze een multidisciplinaire groep van duurzaamheids experts van Except Integrated Sustainability bijeen. Except ontwierp een speciaal programma die de kansen van de plek laat zien. Het resultaat is een routekaart met concrete en snelle kostenbesparingen voor de korte termijn, en daarnaast biedt het nieuwe handvatten voor het kasteel om een rol te spelen in de samenleving van vandaag en morgen.
