Principal

Paul is the founding principal of the Lincoln Institute and is a highly sought after executive coach, facilitator and key note presenter with a focus on stimulating organisational team and individual leadership potential.   Paul is a graduate of the Australian Defence Force Academy, University of New South Wales, the Royal Military College Duntroon and was awarded the prestigious Sasakawa Leadership Scholarship by the Australian Graduate School of Management’s Executive MBA program.

The Australian Army and in particular its infantry core has an international reputation as being one of the world’s toughest and most resilient military units. As an infantry officer Paul has seen international service in 5 foreign countries, culminating in leading an international military observer unit in one of the worlds harshest environments. Paul has safely lead teams out of crossfire, negotiated the release of hostages, reopened international borders that had been closed due to hostile acts and provided humanitarian relief to communities suffering oppression.

Paul has served as the CEO and Board Chairman of Australia’s fastest growing company (BRW # 1) after an approach by the board to lead a substantial change and off-shore expansion.  Paul’s capacity to lead this change in the highly competitive and complex energy sector is testimony to his ability to ‘walk the leadership talk’.
