Ken’s career has focused on maximising multi-stakeholder engagement for the equitable and sustainable delivery of public services particularly for poor households in emerging and developing economies over the last 25 years. He provides advisory and review as well as research and facilitation services to a wide range of public, private, civil society and funding organisations.


Throughout his career, Ken has worked with complex partnerships at the global, national, and local levels with a focus on managing water as a resource for all its uses and ensuring households have access to clean water and safe sanitation. Ken brings a public policy/social development background to his work with an emphasis on institutional coherence, change management and partnership approaches. This is grounded in extensive experience in stakeholder mapping, context analysis, stakeholder dialogue, and partnership and programme design review and evaluation.
