Our Team

Mark is a strategist, storyteller and change agent. He thrives on the big picture and is a champion for sustainability. As a sense-maker and stubborn optimist, he helps organisations find their voice and see their future more clearly. The son of Corgi breeders, Mark would like to change the world for the better.                                                                                     

A former managing editor, Susan knows how to organise. No matter how tight the deadline or challenging the brief, she draws on her problem solving ability to find a way forward. A believer in the benefit of collaboration, and our collective ability to build a better world, Susan loves bringing people together and listening for solutions.                                                                                  

Gabrielle is the great-all-rounder: manager of consultation and stakeholder relations, writer of strategies and case studies, developer of collateral, enthusiastic traveller and occasional tango dancer. She listens, she thinks and she delivers. She’s had extensive experience and knows how to navigate government departments, industry committees and the corporate world.                                                                                   

Our financial aficionado and Asian culinary queen, Meemee keeps our budgets on track and our stomachs satisfied. Currie’s longest serving team member, she’s got an outstanding track record in fiscal and office management and is always open to ideas to make Currie more Fa Cai (prosperous).                                                                                                                             

Sophie is a seasoned communications expert who supports organisations in agriculture, natural resource management and science achieve their goals and increase their impact. She loves to collaborate and draws on her background in science communication, social marketing and partnership brokering in her work.  

As someone fascinated in data and the truths (and untruths) it tells, Ryan is a strong believer in evidence-based decision-making. As an idealist turned realist, he's interested in seeing how we can make the right decisions for positive social change. In his spare time, Ryan geeks out with board games and a good book.       

Laura Griffin brings extensive agricultural media relations and editorial expertise to the Currie team. She is driven to understand how research, policies and more impact people. She uses that understanding to tell stories and develop communications that motivate action. Laura loves conversations with friends and getting swept away into the worlds of novels and movies.
