I draw on a deep and varied experience helping organisations and leaders multiply their positive impact, engage stakeholders, and communicate clearly.
My ability to define, agree and implement strategy while collaborating with stakeholders has been central to the success of my professional career.
This includes working for The Queen at Buckingham Palace; in the press office at Westminster Abbey; an editorial management role with the Evening Standard and Independent Newspaper group; a major events planning role at Sky News; helping to launch London’s first TV channel, LondonLive; and several years as a strategic communications consultant for several other high value projects and roles, across a range of sectors.
I specialise in climate change and nature communications with experience across carbon markets, climate solutions, natural capital investment, climate action organisations and nature advocacy groups. Knowing the sector as I do not only helps save valuable time, but also helps me position you amongst competitors and peers and to stakeholders including investors, potential employees, and of course customers.
I map clear routes to sustainable growth by matching communications strategy to organisational objectives and defining clear and effective messages. I will help you to engage, influence and activate your key audiences through prioritised channels and targeted content.
I have lived and worked in seven countries, on four continents. I grew up in Zimbabwe and Botswana and my heart is still connected to the African bush. I am a Trustee of Tariro UK, a charity that supports young people in Zimbabwe to help them learn, to develop and to grow. I am on the advisory board of Auticon, an IT consulting business that exclusively employs adults on the autism spectrum. I currently live in the “campo” (countryside) in south east Portugal with my husband and small son.
