Social Change is my Specialist Area. Working at the intersection of everyone else’s experience and specialist areas – is my Area of Expertise. This is the arena of the Unknown, it is where I excel – making connections where others see none, generating purpose, passion and potential everywhere.

The unknown as a vocational driver is neither sexy nor trending. Careers in the unknown aren’t popular – they are confronting, demanding, potentially contentious – but never dull.  

The call of the unknown has provided me with opportunities to:

  • support tertiary, secondary, primary education institutions
  • assist SME’s evaluate and obtain their strategic goals
  • collaborative with companies, incl., KPMG, BHP, Microsoft to develop graduate attribute programs
  • start-up, manage and direct an adventure business delivering Deep Learning Experiences in remote locations
  • lead an ethnographic study of labour hire and the gig economy in the Australian clothing industry
  • voluntarily participate in HIV education field work in South Africa
  • create and implement change initiatives that bring organisational directives, including Mission Statements,  to life
  • support organisations pursue Climate Change goals through Green Fleet education programs
  • manage, interpret and promote the benefits of accreditation procedures – including Australian Federal Government quality initiatives
  • lead and collaborate with NPO’s and government organisations to create and support inclusive participation strategies
  • start-up Louise Bricknell & Associates.

In my personal life the call of the unknown has provided the impetus to:

  • compete in sailing world championships
  • race across oceans
  • enjoy a number of creative activities
  • initiate and jointly lead the first international mountain bike expedition around Mt. Kinabalu in Malaysian Borneo
  • complete mountain bike guiding qualifications in Scotland (as part of the Scottish Mountain Bike Leadership Award scheme)
  • hold Remote and Wilderness First Aid qualifications (the Borneo Expedition was a direct result of these experiences)
  • join ten men (I didn’t know) – in a moment of madness – on wave sailing missions in Australia and Morocco.
