Leigh Baker

I’m a writer, speaker and sustainability provocateur.

I went freelance with Balance3 after 20 years working on supply chain improvement projects in Australian industry.  Get behind the factory door and you’ll be amazed – amazed at the technology that delivers our products and services; amazed at the intricacies necessary to make the things we use every day; and amazed at the scale of resources and energy consumed in that process.

You also end up amazed at the amount of time, energy and effort that successful innovation requires.   You get to see that truly successful technology innovation projects have smart leaders with the ability to build strong relationships and deliver business results.

From decades of research and experience, I’ve collected the best of the best of design approaches and innovation delivery practices.  They span traditional sustainability, next generation regenerative thinking, time management, personal effectiveness, interpersonal communication and innovation delivery.

Sustainability is changing human systems.  It absolutely is hard work – but it doesn’t need to be drudgery or slavery.  With the right models, design approaches, tools and techniques you can get smarter at delivering real results that deliver real innovation.

I help my clients find new strategies for career and business success by taking a systems approach.  So you find powerful leverage points and deliver successful, sustainable innovation.

You’ll discover how to see beyond compliance, efficiency and reporting to  identify and deliver on the emerging business and career opportunities of sustainability.  You’ll start asking new questions with new insight, that enable you to create great projects.

I’ve always been an advocate for win/win/win sustainability.  I’m currently working with international and local Blue Economy specialists to spread this systemic, biomimicry-based sustainable business approach across Australia and through the Asia-Pacific.
