“Being a broadcast journalist taught me the importance of understanding the human story. Working for an Ambassador highlighted the art of building a trusted network of relationships to support wider system change. Life has taught me change is complex, aligning on the truth takes work, and leadership starts with knowing what you stand for. Facilitating quality conversations which bring out the best of humanity, deliver results and engender socially responsible partnership is what I consider important. I’m privileged to share that journey with my clients and colleagues everyday.”
