Short Bio

Margie’s passion for cities was sparked by her role as the inaugural Director, Adelaide Capital City Committee. The Committee supports collaboration and joint priority setting by the state government and the Adelaide City Council.

Moving to London she led the Greater South East and Thames Gateway economic programs for the London Development Agency and south-east regions in the UK.

As a consultant she has worked on projects such as closed loop innovation for the UK Institute for Sustainability and with Charles Landry, an expert in urban futures and creative cities, on the High Speed 2 (HS2) rail project for the Independent Transport Commission.

Other projects with Charles Landry include examining Adelaide under his Creative City Index (2013-14) and  developing a think piece on ‘The Creative Bureaucracy’. Richard Brecknock also collaborated on these projects.

She has an MSc in Development and Planning (Urban Regeneration) from University College London.
