About Me:
Loves connecting with people and learning from them. I am energised when I am with others. I am inspired when I see others succeed in achieving their dreams.
My dream:
To wake up every morning feeling excited to jump out of bed. To spend every minute of every day feeling appreciation and gratitude. To journey with others towards our common goals. To celebrate, laugh, feel and enjoy!
My concern:
I am concerned about the over-professionalisation of community development. I was attracted to the Constellation because of its human approach - that we facilitate and stimulate rather than to impose solutions.

I would like to see a world where human experience, local wisdom and local resources are truly valued, and become the starting point for people to take action.

I'd like to see a world where it's normal for people say hello to each-other on the bus and and for neighbours to show care for one another!
I'm proud of:
Winning the US "Frisco Boxing Championships" in 2004 as the women's lightweight champion! Now I am in my 30's and working towards my next bout. My boxing dream gives me strength, determination and energy.
What I think of Community Life Competence:
A process that can stimulate local responses in any context.
What do I want to do to spread Community Life Competence?
Facilitate Community Life Competence in my community, Join a facilitation team, Share about Community Life Competence with potential partners; friends; colleagues, I want to apply SALT in my own life (S: Stimulate; Support; A: Appreciate; L: Listen; Learn; Link; T: Transfer; Team), I want to share my experience on my blog in Ning, Other
If you choose other, please specify
Engage with the the business sector, development think tanks and other influential groups to share our approach.
The small secretariat of the Constellation also needs help. Do you want to help? I want to:
Writing skills, Share Community Life Competence with potential partners, online facilitation, Other
If you choose other, please specify
Strategy development, systems development

Fishermen as researchers - lessons learned from the AAS Partnership

Posted on September 3, 2015 at 9:31pm 2 Comments

Can fishermen and farmers become researchers? YOU BET!

From 2012 - 2015, in a partnership with CGIAR and the World Fish Centre, the Constellation shared SALT and CLCP with fishing and farming communities across 5 countries: Zambia, Solomon Islands, Phillippines, Bangladesh and Cambodia.

Our joint challenge was to incorporate SALT and CLCP with approach known as "Research in Development".

At the ground level, the initiative was an opportunity for local community…

 Today, my last day as Facilitator Transfer in the Global Support Team (GST), I am reflecting on the wonderful people that make up our Constellation family. And to me, that’s exactly what it is – a family. Made up of brilliant and courageous people. It seems that when we come together in the Constellation, the best is brought out in us. What a joy it has been to be part of this.…

My 10 tips for facilitating a learning event

Posted on September 5, 2013 at 10:36pm 3 Comments

Last week I had the pleasure of facilitating a large learning event, alongside Dusit Duangsa and Thuom Nary. We had 47 participants, ranging from farmers and fishermen to local government representatives and NGO staff. About 30% were bi-lingual, the rest speaking only Khmer language. 

The experience was a rich one, and our daily AAR revealed many areas…

Now that's what I call INITIATIVE!

I wish to share with facilitators and communities around the world about the incredible strengths of the people in Siem Reap province, Cambodia. This week I have had the privilege of accompanying a new facilitation team through a process of “Visioning” in 3 villages – Santey (a farming village), Muk Wat (a fishing village on the banks of the Tonle Sap, houses raised on stilts above the water) and Peam Ta Ou (a floating village, pictured…

Hi Olivia,

Lovely to meet you! Are you a fellow Capetonian? 

I'm very interested in the work on packaging SALT for businesses. Let's set up a time to chat.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Dear Olivia,

Nice to meet you on the global of CLCP network. I would like to share you some nice photos from the second week of community visioning in Trampaer village, Pursat province. I observed the community facilitators were performed in more confidence than in the class in Siem Reap. WorldFish did one game to understand the emotions of community facilitators since they joint the class in Siem Reap until the week they started implementing CLCP/CV. All of them had up and down emotions because of fear, didn't catch up lessons, cool to seat in the AC room, met with different people, less confident to do at community, however they feel better day by day during the practice in their community and the appreciation from the WorldFish, local NGO, local authorities and their communities. ANKO Director, Mrs. Samnan, one of local AAS NGO partners, has prepared to brief meeting to the 4 community facilitators (2 villages-Baku and Trampaer), local authorities and her staff before the 2nd CV week. Then she has encouraged her 2 CF from Baku to work and learn from the process in Trampaer and will shifting again next week in Baku (23-27 Sept 2013). It makes CFs learn more from their practices. SALT visit in Trampaer village to identify the strengths.

Hi Olivia, nice to be in the global sharing here.

Hi Olivia, I will be going with the team to Marrakesh in Dec and thanks to you introducing me to the SALT concept, I'm looking forward to pitching my input and discussions the "the SALT" way and see how it will pan out.

It will mostly be healthcare professionals with a few patient representatives and patient support groups. 

Is there a group already in existence in Morrocco?

I fly out to Botswana 5th Oct but will be able to access emails.

The coffee is long overdue!! there is so much to catch up on.
