About

Creating optimal cultures for impactful change | Facilitation | Conflict transformation | 

Pru has been engaged in social action & facilitating dialogue & conflict transformation in complex settings for over 15 years. For the past 8 years she has been particularly focused on enabling people who do good, to get along better & communicate more effectively, in order to free up their energy & time to tackle the big challenges.

Pru designs & facilitates conversations & workshops that matter, conflict transformation & engaging action-learning programs. She also coaches leaders & facilitators. She works across the social change, not-for-profit, start-up & higher education sectors, through to agile tech & political organisations & for-purpose boards.

Pru draws heavily on the Lewis Deep Democracy approach to facilitation & leadership & oversees the accreditation of facilitators in over 8 countries.

After 12 years of living in Mparntwe (Alice Springs) & Darwin, a few years ago Pru returned to Naarm (Melbourne) where she lives with her family.

Through her work in social policy advocacy, predominately focussed on Aboriginal rights & the NT Intervention in particular, for over 8 years she aimed to centre the voices of people directly affected by intersecting issues.

Pru has held community & public sector board appointments including the Ministerial Family Violence Advisory Board & the Working Women's Centre.

Currently co-designing a project to facilitate dialogues on a nexus of:

1. How to respond with what Joanna Macy calls ‘active hope’ while we live in climate emergency & how to bring our families, communities & organisations into the conversation.

2. Genuinely acknowledging what it means to live on First Nations/Aboriginal peoples' land.

Facilitating courageous conversations to support effective intercultural work & improve relationships between First Nations people & settlers/others, is a passion that was sparked in her late teenage years. Pru feels a responsibility to play a role in shifting relationships between between First Nations & other for the better. On this journey she definitely makes mistakes along the way and has a lot of lifelong learning to do.
