| Sydney, Australia Ross is committed to delivering tailored, quality projects regarding research, public policy, and strategy for government and non-government clients. Formerly a Director of Policy for the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, Ross led teams responsible for the review and reform of major strategies, programs, and policies. These reform projects required extensive stakeholder consultation, rigorous reviews of the literature and current agency/partner performance, and the development of implementable frameworks and recommendations. He also led community-strengthening strategies for the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet, winning the NSW Public Sector Gold Award for Social Justice Initiatives. But Ross hasn’t always been in government policy. Prior to his 13 years in government, he spent 10 years establishing a network of youth and community services in Western Sydney, as well as being the Chair of the NSW sector peak. The service model that his teams developed became a template for new government investment in the sector and was consulted by services from every Australian jurisdiction.
