I am responsible for all water and flood risk business activity across Arup and have advised at a regional, national and transnational level. This has included keynote speeches at Stockholm World Water Week, International Water Week in Amsterdam and at ecobuild in London.

The Royal Academy of Engineering appointed me as Visiting Professor in Engineering Design for Sustainable Development until 2008. In 2014 Bradford University awarded me an Honorary Doctorate for my work promoting sustainable water management.

I am on the Leadership Council of the UK Water Partnership and was project director for the BCIA Award winning Bradford City Park.

I am also a board director of the Water Industry Forum and am on the Policy Group for the Alliance of Global Water Adaptation (AGWA). I recently presented to senior executives across the Australian water sector on the issue of public and private governance.
