Rethink Consult - passionate about facilitating positive change...
After several years of dedicated independent research, in the fields of energy, economy and environment, it is apparent these systems do not act in isolation. These systems are inextricably linked. Only by understanding the connectivity and synergies of each system can we truly develop positive solutions and strategies to move forward.
Our holistic approach ensures that risks, vulnerabilities and opportunities are minimised, mitigated or maximised. By raising awareness around systemic challenges we can help identify, collaborate and guide communities, organisations and business towards a more resilient future. Our goal is to help re-position organisations to adapt and thrive in a changing world...

Author of two books, Cry Me A River, One Man's Journey down the Murray Darling with a Kayak on Wheels, and Tough is not enough, Steve believes the climate crisis is all about managing risk.
