Chris Brock   

Chris has operated at the highest level of island government in strategic planning, economics, tourism & hospitality, and utility services.  He is attributed to the origination and subsequent adoption of many successful and practicable initiatives covering economic strategy, land use planning, population management, tourism development, and statistical analysis.


In the private sector, Chris has pioneered a unique research capability which not only benchmarked economic, social and environmental issues in islands around the world but has also identified best practice in a wide range of areas.  This work has further enhanced his already extensive island experience and knowledge base.


Chris is a Member of the Royal Institute of International Affairs - Chatham House.
