For more than twenty-five years, Cameron has been devoted to focusing, amplifying and accelerating the work of world-positive ventures.

A polymath of impact, Cameron has worked across more than 30 market sectors in 16 countries, including healthcare, food security, WASH, sustainable agriculture, ethical business, LOHAS, zero-waste, impact investing, gender, cleantech, wearables, transportation, online publishing, environmental management, disaster-response, and more.

By consulting with thousands of entrepreneurs, academics, and non-profit leaders, Cameron has observed consistent patterns of failure and success across multiple countries, cultures and contexts. Through a unique combination of searing enquiry, values interrogation, vision refinement, systems thinking and strategy, Cameron has delivered value to projects throughout Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, India, Fiji, the United States, Canada, Jordan, Israel, Morocco, Denmark, Germany, England and Switzerland.

An Australian-born global-citizen, Cameron has successfully launched and invested in more than a dozen world-positive ventures, including Australia’s first organic restaurant, green web hosting service, cause marketing agency, and sustainable cleaning companies, several integrated health centres, a string of yoga studios, and an online platform to connect impact investors, advisors and entrepreneurs.

The lead author on the upcoming 'Billions to Trillions: How a transformative approach to finance and collaboration supports citizens, governments, corporations & civil society to share the burdens & the benefits of solving wicked problems”, Cameron is a prolific and experienced speaker, facilitator, mentor and strategist in the impact venture market.

He has developed a reputation as an uncompromisingly dedicated humanist with an unrelenting commitment to the creation of a more just, equitable and sustainable world.
