Dr Lynne H. De Weaver Australia
Location: Preston | AS
I am passionate about building social capital and promoting economic development in communities in regional Australia. I have also mentored some of regional Australia's most successful small businesses. Prior to moving to regional Australia, I was an award-winning copywriter and Creative Director at several multi-national advertising agencies, including UK based Brann Direct. As a published author and prolific professional writer, I have also been a keynote speaker at conferences in Australia, NZ, UK and the USA. My PhD was entitled Jumping through Hoops: Delivering More Effective Community Consultation during the Grant Application Process and was based on my field work in establishing seven Community Technology Centres throughout the Northern Rivers Region of NSW.
