About

Bec McMaster is the Lead Catalyst of Sustainable Projects

Bec is a systems thinker, designer, project manager, planner extraordinaire and passionate sustainability advocate.

Recently Bec was accepted into the highly contested Un-School of Disruptive Design‘s Inaugural Fellowship.  The fellowship was held in New York City with 15 other fellows from 12 countries. The fellowship was led by sustainability provocateur, designer and sociologist Leyla Acaroglu and focused primarily on the three threads of social innovation, sustainability and design. The fellowship was strongly supported by a host of innovative mentors that really strengthened the fellowship’s depth and breadth.

Bec has had experience in

  • project managing a wide variety of projects from commercially designed products, large-scale interior renovation projects, major international touring exhibitions to self-publishing a cookbook with friends
  • designing innovative and interactive experiences that facilitate learning and understanding predominantly in the museum exhibition space on topics as diverse as tropical rainforests, chinese dragons, Māori taonga, West Africa, Antarctica and motorcycles
  • developing systems, strategies and operational documentation to streamline working practices for added value and new process implementation
  • successful collaborative projects in varied capacities from within local government, community organisations, industry and the commercial environment, academic institutions, and as a sole trader – each requiring a unique approach and focus
  • sustainability within organisations and for discrete projects – leveraging existing systems, suppliers and resources to chart sustainable, measurable progress that is equally economically, socially and environmentally sustainable for the long term

Bec writes a blog called Everyday Sustainability where she charts her personal journey to becoming more sustainable and profiles projects and people that are making waves in this space.
