Director & Principal Consultant
I’m driven by serving people and communities affected by conflict and disaster, and fascinated by what it takes to lead and deliver change in complex environments.
I’ve been privileged to have worked across the corporate, military, government and non-profit worlds, having tackled issues such as violent extremism in East Africa, humanitarian aid in Darfur, Pakistan and Myanmar, Ebola in Sierra Leone, HIV in Zambia, organisational reform in the DR Congo and Rwanda, stabilisation in South Sudan, Somalia and Afghanistan and others.
I’m passionate about helping talented people succeed in their work – whether they be political figures and executive directors, or local aid-workers and young entrepreneurs.
I helped establish Wasafiri as an organisation dedicated to tackling complex and intractable issues from conflict to climate change.
(I’m also inspired by dusty adventures to distant peaks and wild places!)
