Ian has broad 40 years of experience in the oil, gas, nuclear and conventional power industries in roles ranging from R&D, project management, business development and over the last 20 years has concentrated on energy technology commercialisation with all of his current activities focused on renewable energy.  He has strong belief and confidence that Australia can play a major role in the future renewables economy and is deeply committed to ensuring that happens.



Gilda Davies: Events

Gilda previously developed and was lecturer of the Diploma of Sustainability for almost 5 years. During that time she also provided consultant advice on a large Builders' waste minimisation and recycling project. She graduated from Murdoch University with a Master of Business majoring in Environmental Management in 2003 and was so interested in the science of the environment she went on to study Environmental Science. Gilda has hands-on environmental experience as well as 25 years in business management and international consulting. A long-term focus on grass-roots climate change action has led Gilda to become involved in the work of SEN. Gilda was previously our Events Team Leader and has now taken on the challenging role in Outreach.
