Off the Contour – Blog

I don’t know when I came up with the moniker ‘Off the Contour’, however as a ‘Keyliner’ it is only fitting that the title of my blog should be ‘off’ rather than ‘on’ the contour. Many of us who are involved in advocacy roles will find themselves on the edge and even within that edge there is often a shared narrative—one that I often find myself not agreeing with.

I am by no means a prolific blogger or online contributor, however over the last 15 years or so I have penned a few articles which may be of interest:
