Merv Stewart is passionate about making a difference and he has the drive and experience to make meaningful things happen with the doers he respects and admires. He understands that collaboration and connections are paramount – constantly reaching out to others, seeing what he can learn from them, what knowledge he can share, what ideas and opportunities can come out of potential partnerships and collaboration.

Merv has been a strong and constant supporter of HALT’s meaningful grassroots work since he first saw founder Jeremy Forbes speak at a conference 6 years ago. Since then he’s worked alongside Jeremy to assist in sharing the HALT messages on a national scale. Merv is now responsible in his own community of the Mornington Peninsula for delivering quarterly HALT blitz week events alongside Jeremy. He is honoured to be able to use his program delivery and social enterprise skills to assist HALT to grow its amazing impact further across Australia in the coming years.
