Managing Director & Founder
Morgan's passion for protecting the vulnerable is second to none. He has assisted organisations in risk management and prevention of harm for the past 18 years.
Whilst undertaking a bachelor’s degree in applied science (Leisure & Health) through the University of Sydney, Morgan worked in disability, aged care and children's residential facilities including Stewart House and Royal Far West Children's Hospital on Sydney's northern beaches. As a result, he developed a keen interest in human rights, risk management and the essential professional standards that are needed when working with vulnerable clientele.
Throughout his eight-year front-line career, he developed and facilitated informative sector learning in a range of risk management areas whilst working with vulnerable clients. This resulted in a transition to the NSW Public Service where he spent a decade helping organisations manage risk via Senior Project Officer roles in the NSW public service including within the NSW Sport & Recreation - Child Protection & Employment Screening Unit, NSW Commission for Children & Young People and the Office of the Children’s Guardian.
Morgan is an independent representative on the National Reference Group for Play By The Rules, a role that began in 2006 and has assisted the Australian Sports Commission in child safe risk management, complaint handling and member protection since 2011. He is the preferred facilitator of Member Protection Information Officer training in three states and territories and for various National and State Sporting Organisations.
Morgan additionally sits on the board of the Sport Access Foundation.
Morgan holds a Bachelor of Applied Science (Leisure & Health) completed at Sydney University and a Certificate IV in Training & Assessment.
