Harry has experience of working at a high level in statutory, voluntary and private sectors so he is well placed to understand the benefits and risks of working in all three when it comes to generating quality public places. For 20 years he was appointed as an expert to the European Commission in consumer safety and child safety. He is also a co-author of a guide to the European Standard for the Safety of Playground Equipment, published DIN, the German Standards Organisation and now available in 6 languages. He is currently on a European Standards Organisation (CEN) working group looking at playground safety in relation to children with special needs.

Through working with Richter Spielgeraete, operating out of Bavaria, Harry spent much of his time helping to establish innovative and exciting playspaces across Europe. He is a frequent speaker on the international scene particularly on the subject of the balance between play value and safety and passionately believes in allowing all children the chance, through play, to reach their full potential whatever their ability or circumstances. He is currently a board member of Play Scotland.
