DETAIL: The presentation focusses on the tricky bits of planning you don’t learn about in university; the joys and perils of being a planner and how to stay focussed on planning principles in the face of the political, community and process pressures experienced in planning practice. Presentation content draws on the wisdom of scores of seasoned planning professionals who generously shared their early career learnings in “Mastering the Art of Planning – 100 Stories from Urban Planning Practice” for the benefit of those who follow in their footsteps.
PRESENTER: Robin King-Cullen LFPIA CPP
Prior to establishing her own consultancy business in 2004, Robin had nearly 30 years’ experience in local government across rural, regional and metropolitan Councils in Australia including 11 years at Department Head level. Her experience covers rural and urban town planning (both statutory and strategic); public policy development; community consultation and dispute resolution; and governance. After selling The Planning Academy in early 2014 Robin has concentrated on sharing her own (and others’) workplace experiences in planning practice with planning students and early-career professionals. Her current business, “Planning Secrets” www.planningsecrets.com.au, records the real-life stories of experienced town planners about lessons they learned from town planning practice – what they were doing, what happened, what they learned and what advice they would give young planners as a result.
