KEITH GREAVES, CO-FOUNDER

Keith trained as a Science in Society Facilitator (Bed Technology, MSc Communications – University of London) and spent 12 years with the Science Museum in London connecting scientists and the public through dynamic conversations around big dilemmas in our society.   The role included opportunities to spend time in countries such as Azerbaijan and Syria where Keith observed first-hand how people can rise to face real life challenges.  These experiences embedded Keith’s belief in fostering a more relaxed approach to having conversations around big topics.

Since moving to Melbourne in 2008, Keith has worked on a wide range of complex stakeholder engagement projects across a number of industries including tourism, sustainability, culture, sport, community infrastructure, science and education.

Keith specialises in facilitation, strategic stakeholder planning, implementation and engagement and is dedicated to the active promotion of IAP2 values and practices.  He is an IAP2 Australasia board member and IAP2 licenced trainer who regularly delivers stakeholder engagement training and master class programs.

Keen to see a culture of better practice in our society, Keith is driven to share knowledge and learnings, giving back to the field that he loves.
 
MosaicLab is a platform for continuous learning about participation. For me, it’s important that these learnings are shared with others, ultimately contributing to quality and meaningful engagement becoming the norm in the way that decisions are made.
