Bob Frazer has more than 37 years of experience in community development and empowerment, facilitation, mediation and negotiation, primarily in North and Far North Queensland. For 25 of those years he has worked directly with Indigenous people, communities and organisations, and for the past 15 years he has worked closely with people and organisations across all community sectors, initially in a leadership role in community based natural resource (NRM) and cultural heritage management organisations, and since 2018 as a consultant to not-for-profit organisations and corporate clients. For the whole of that period Bob has also demonstrated his ability to effectively engage and collaborate with Commonwealth, State and Local government officials, and to effectively develop, deliver, monitor, evaluate and report to community and government on a very diverse range of programs.
Bob brings a wealth of experience to TierraMar in areas such as; natural resource and cultural heritage management; engagement with community, conservation groups, all three levels of government as well as a diverse range of industry sectors and other stakeholders; organisational and community empowerment and capacity building; analysis and improvement of organisational culture; workshop and forum facilitation; mediation; evaluation and governance. Bob also has extensive experience in development of investment strategies, programs and projects and associated funding proposals.
