James Harley

James has a varied and diverse background. He has worked across government, not-for-profit and academic institutions for more than 25 years. His experience includes reviewing and evaluating both large scale government projects and small not-for-profit organisations. He has project managed and coordinated projects involving local and state government websites and building projects in Vietnam and Fiji. He is a consulting research associate for RMIT, working on diverse projects including reviewing the Strategic Indigenous Housing Infrastructure Program (SIHIP) in the Northern Territory, and assessing the Australian Tax Office's Research and Innovation Program. James has worked in the arts sector developing digital media exhibitions that toured across Australia and he has sat on advisory panels for government funding bodies. Many years ago, James was a a factory manager for Pacific Dunlop, responsible for amongst other things, coordinating the first automated packaging system in manufacturing. 

It would be fair to say that he has seen many different ways to do business. These experiences give James the ability to draw from many contexts, so that he may appreciate each environment in which he works. In amongst these experiences, James has also picked up several qualifications including a PhD, and two Masters of Applied Science; one researching the Victorian regional gallery network, the other as an extension to a Graduate Diploma in Museum Studies.
