– Senior Strategist
Tom is a networked advocacy specialist with over 20 years’ experience in innovation management.
Though he cut his teeth as Campaigns Manager with global counter-culture agents at Adbusters, Tom also spent time in the private sector, where he co-founded a publicly-traded digital agency, gained unique experience leading online stakeholder dialogue projects and designed patented evaluation systems. Now back to his principal passion, Tom works to transfer best practices in advocacy innovation to progressive campaigners.
As a trainer, coach and facilitator, he has worked with groups in the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Australia and New Zealand. As a researcher and analyst, he has released several reports on emerging campaign practices and publishes frequently in the The Stanford Social Innovation Review and with Mobilisation Lab.
To share knowledge openly with other campaigners, Tom bottom-lines the Blueprints for Change network, which produces free ‘how-to’ guides for progressive change makers.
