had 22 years in the West of Scotland - for 20 of them in a leading position in local and regional government. My focus was setting up new ways of officials, politicians and citizens to work together - at both community, town and regional level.
The last 19 years have been completely different - I've been nomadic - living wherever my projects took me - Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech and Slovak Republics, Denmark, Hungary, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Romania and Uzbekistan. The focus has been capacity building of both local and central government systems.
