Jason McFarlane – Member profile

  1. Who are you?

I am a father, surfer, struggling vegie gardener… and economist.

2. What are you working on?

I have recently launched Far Lane with my colleague Kaitlyn. We partner with communities, organisations and agencies to build relationships, systems and resources required to sustain positive change.

3. Who do you collaborate with?

Our partners are characterised by a willingness to own their situation and a commitment to drive change. These collaborators can be individuals or come from community, government and private sectors.

4. Is there an innovation you’re loving right now?

I am loving being unchained from Excel and getting out to work with real people. The conversations I am having with really powerful, motivated individuals make me pretty darn excited about the future.

5. Is there a time when you are most creative?

I have learnt that I derive a lot of my creativity and energy from the inspiring conversations I have with others. I also have learnt that I think best on my feet – when I am moving. So don’t get in between me and a white board!
