"Sustainability manager, mother and married to Mark."

Orginally and architect by degree, I have had a very eclectic career with Lend Lease in Australia involving work in construction project management, organisational development and learning, innovation and more recently sustainability. I am married with three young children who have inspired my 'other' career of writing children's music. I am a keen swimmer and singer and advocate for love of this amazing planet we have come from!

Dear Ann
It was a pleasure of reading your post.
I am Cheng Zhang, a master student from London School of Economics (LSE).

As I am writing a dissertation on OpenIDEO, can I send you a questionnaire for you to answer in about 10 days time?
I can see that you are an active participant, and I am really interested in finding out more about people like you.
If you do not have time it is totally understandable too! If you are interested, could you please send me an email to ? Or you can tell me your email here;).
Best regards and many thanks
