Achievements:

Neil has been in change management roles since 1970 when he was a cadet in Operations Research at BHP’s Newcastle Steelworks. Every role since then has involved change, be that through developing strategy, using technology, or just a turnaround. MIM moved Neil through several roles, from metal to coal and back to metal mines. 

Neil was one of the youngest appointees to Executive Staff of MIM, a Board sanctioned appointment, and was a partner in a global Consulting Firm. He has consulted to many Boards and CEOs in his consulting career, and as a NED, has been through major changes ranging from an IPO to total restructure of strategy, structure, and staffing.  

He is also a Visiting Fellow to the Smart Transport Research Centre at QUT.
