“It’s rare to find a person with such high level skills and the energy to match. Vince is all the more admirable as he leverages these qualities for the benefit of his community.”

We have been fortunate to work with Vince on a number of projects over several years. We have always found his enthusiasm and creativity contagious, his networks extensive and his empathy genuine. This has resulted in outcomes which have exceeded our expectations and pushed us just that little bit beyond our comfort zone (in a good way!)

Vince is a creative and positive force in the community. His work on the Orange Youth Arts Festival was inspired, developing a new conceptual framework for community event development and delivering excellent results in terms of quality, diversity and broad community participation. Vince has a way of connecting deeply with people and gently challenging them to think more broadly about ways of achieving their personal and professional objectives.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Vince, on many initiatives, for over 8 years. Thanks to Vince actively taking a lead role, each of these initiatives has met with success and two were actually listed as ‘National Best Practice’. Vince’s capacity to see the big picture is equal to any I have seen, but where he exceeds anyone else, is through his capacity to take that big picture, break it down to its components, ensure each of these are feasible and then puts them into practice so the big picture is achieved. Vince always has a focus on measurable outcomes and brings out the best in anyone he works with. I am very excited to hear of ‘Community Connect Central West’ and will be seeking to align my work across the state where ever possible.

Vince is a strategic and knowledgable builder of community cohesion. In every project of his that I have either been observer or collaborator, he has demonstrated the rare combination of enthusiasm, a thorough understanding of the cohort, and the ability to articulate purpose, benefit and relevance to the specific and broader community.
