The Australian Resilience Centre works with Natural Communication to synthesise research and produce a range of communication products including web-based material and summary documents.

“Working with Paul and the ARC has proved invaluable. Paul is highly skilled in facilitating discussions, teasing out different viewpoints and slowly bringing the group round to seeing the issues through a resilience lens. The work that is being done by the centre is instrumental in bringing thinkers, scientists, planners and policy makers together to consider challenges, share ideas, and devise more strategic approaches that encourage focused learning and improvement.”

“I have recently had the pleasure of being better involved with the Resilience Planning Community of Practice. Clearly respected amongst a broad group of practitioners, Paul is able to provide a scientific approach while engendering a collegial environment. The Australian Resilience Centre facilitates access to valuable information and a sharing of lessons across networks. We are now using these established networks to help build our Regional Action Plan and getting Paul’s insights and advice to review our technical approach. While it’s always great to work with smart people, the best thing for me, is being able to work with good people who are honest and sincere in their dealings.”
