Community Engagement

Bringing academia to the public is a key component of my professional philosophy.  I am available to participate in events on topics related to my areas of professional expertise for businesses, schools and community groups.  These can be stand-alone presentations, interactive workshops or professional development seminars, depending on your needs.

Please contact me via the Asia Education Foundation or directly via email if you would like to discuss what I can do for your organisation.
