Gareth Durrant (Australia)

Consultant, DSIL Global

Gareth works as a consultant with Designing for Social Innovation and Leadership Global (DSIL Global), an innovation company based in Bangkok.

Gareth is an expert at driving successful projects that merge private sector innovation, human-centred design and progressive facilitation. His focus is on leveraging public health strengths such as monitoring and evaluation, advocacy, coalition building and partnerships across corporate, government and international development sectors.

Gareth enjoys presenting ideas that challenge internal organisational cultures with humor and authenticity to deliver consciousness raising, growth, and change.

Prior to joining DSIL, Gareth was the director of partnerships and programs at Asia Catalyst, an American non-governmental organisation that focuses on the health and human rights of marginalised communities in China and Southeast Asia. At Asia Catalyst, Gareth trained leaders of community-based organisations to run more effective, sustainable, and democratic organisations, and to conduct rigorous human rights research and advocacy.

Gareth has also worked in the private sector and with other nonprofit organisations such as International Planned Parenthood Federation and Marie Stopes International. He holds a bachelor’s of business administration degree and a certificate in women and gender studies from National Taiwan University, as well as a master’s of public health degree from the University of Melbourne.
