Stuart Waters

Stuart’s background in ecology and sustainability sparked his interest in the connections and interactions between elements in a system. He has brought this way of looking at the world to a wide range of complex situations.

Stuart has a genuine enthusiasm for coaching and supporting others to think and act collaboratively. His approach is respectful, light-hearted and based on a belief that people have the right and the ability to tackle complex problems when given new tools to use.

Clients value Stuart’s help when facing complex problems that aren’t easy to solve. Often these problems relate to how water is managed – from planning for sea-level rise to improving water quality in catchments and estuaries. They also include how teams work inside organisations.
