Which is just as well because she chairs Infrastructure WA, the Malka Foundation and Airbridge, is the Deputy Chair of the Green Building Council of Australia and a member of the board of NBN and the board of the Child and Adolescent Health Service.
On top of all that, Nicole provides strategic advice to government and the private sector, overseeing major infrastructure and integrated planning initiatives, including the Future Fremantle Planning Committee and previously the Westport Taskforce which developed a 50 year freight and trade plan for the South West of Western Australia.  
Nicole graduated from the University of Notre Dame, Fremantle, with degrees in Law and Business (Environmental) and now has over 20 years experience working in law, government and consulting.

Her background in infrastructure, economic development and community engagement provides her with a unique insight into the complexity of planning and delivering large economic and infrastructure projects in an environment of ever-changing social expectations. She has worked throughout regional WA as well as on national and metropolitan economic and infrastructure initiatives.  

Fremantle Shipping News was extremely pleased when Nicole Lockwood kindly accepted our invitation to sit down with our Editor, Michael Barker, to record this podcast about her career to date and particularly Westport and The Future of Fremantle project.
