Sustainable Systems believes that those who acknowledge environmental concerns early and who meet this awareness with a proactive response will be the leaders of the next decades. Those who quickly grasp the inevitable changes and demands already taking place have the best chance of protecting and developing their own enterprises, while meeting the expectations of an increasingly aware population.
Those who best grasp the inevitable changes and demands already taking place have the best chance of protecting and developing their own enterprises, while meeting the expectations of an increasingly aware population. Growing numbers of people across many sectors that include business, the professions, governments, non-government organisations and commerce, point to environmental sustainability as fast becoming a key issue, and a central measure for successful futures.
“Des teaches with a view to expanding knowledge and challenging his audience to find knowledge within themselves. His insights into human relationships go beyond the specific fields of psychology and human development to arenas which are spiritual and environmental. Des has a care for the world and the way it works that asks important questions, suggests answers and paints pictures for people to contemplate”.
A.Roy Bowden, Head of School, Human
“I highly recommend Des as a trainer/group leader. He has the ability to facilitate a group of people from a wide variety of backgrounds and interests, to establish common goals and work together to achieve their objectives. Des uses his facilitative skills, highly developed empathy, wide experience and knowledge of group dynamics, and humour to build a safe and coherent group”.
Ainslie Martin, former Head of Counselling, Central Institute of Technology.
“My experiences with him are consistent with others I know … He is friendly and pleasant to be with; he is a positive and influential person; he has wide experience of life, is widely read, and he speaks and writes persuasively”.
John Small, former Lecturer, Education, University of Canterbury.
“Des’ articles were marked by his diligence in research. … He brought to his writing for ‘The Press’ a varied background of occupation, experience and travel. These gave him an appreciation of the human complexity of the topics, which I was not able to find in stories on the same topics from other sources. He wrote with a conscious commitment to inform his readers about certain issues … which did not cloud his objectivity or impartiality as a journalist”.
John Wilson, former Leader Writer, Christchurch Press.
“He (Des) is a reliable trustworthy person with a strong sense of loyalty and commitment. He is also able and gifted in a number of ways – as a writer, speaker, group leader and organiser”.
John Curnow, former Executive Officer,
“Des brings a keen understanding of wider social, cultural and political issues, and how they affect health and welfare.”
David Quinlan, former Senior Clinical Psychologist,
