Our People

ClivePhillips – Managing Director

Fascinated by how the world works and with a passion for the outdoors, Clive spent his late teens and early twenties, mountaineering, cycling and conducting geological fieldwork around Europe. Ever restless and seeking to make a real difference, he joined the British Army at the comparatively old age of 26. Armed with a PhD and the fitness of someone more often seen on 2 wheels than not, he embarked on a career that saw him lead troops in a number of the worlds “hot spots” including Iraq and Afghanistan. After almost a decade of service, and seeing a future that included far too many desk jobs, Clive decided to put his skills to work elsewhere and moved to New Zealand. This led to new challenges in the defence and humanitarian sectors and to work in a variety of remote locations across the Pacific. He also made the first of what he hopes will be many more forays into the world of logistics support in Antarctica. Passionate about helping others and inspiring others to pursue their dreams, Clive founded Question 4 in 2014.

Neil 2Neil Pancipanci – Food Security and Livelihoods Consultant.

Neil is a man with an affinity for the sea if ever there was one.  With over 15 years experience in fisheries, Neil is our man in the Philippines.  A committed family man if you can’t find him at home with the kids, or shooting hoops on the basketball court then it probably means he is helping people develop their fisheries or get them and their families back on their feet after a disaster.  Since leaving university Neil has worked in the private sector, for local NGOs, community based organisations and International NGOs. He has led teams in a number of emergencies in the Asia-Pacific region.  These have included the responses to Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, floods in Rakhine State and drought in PNG. He has also worked with internally displaced persons affected by armed conflicts in Myanmar. Not content with just focusing on fisheries Neil also has wider agricultural knowledge and is a mean logistician.

Greg has the entrepreneurial spirit running through his veins. A businessman with vast strategic and operational management experience. Greg is an expert facilitator and project manager who has worked extensively in the military and defence procurement and manufacturing sectors. Originally from the UK, Greg has worked in the far flung corners of the world and is now based in New Zealand where when he gets the chance he indulges his passion for the water by racing boats or SCUBA diving.

Robert Kadlubowski – Learning and Development Consultant

Robert is our man who knows how people learn. Passionate about helping teams and individuals get the best out of themselves, Robert has spent the last 15 years analysing needs, designing, delivering and evaluating learning programmes in a wide variety of sectors.  He has taken on this challenge all over the world, including in the UK, US, UAE, Hong Kong, Australia and across Europe. Since moving to New Zealand almost a decade ago, he has also spent considerable time as a volunteer member of Emergency Rescue and Firefighting teams including responding to the February 2011 Christchurch Earthquake. He was probably the only Civil Defence rescuer from outside of Canterbury, who happened to be in Christchurch at the time of the quake. This experience has given him a unique perspective when working with emergency management teams.
