About me

VP Operations & Strategy at Ecosphere+

I head up operations for Ecosphere+, a climate solutions company that helps businesses create and implement nature-based solutions to enable them to succeed in a world aligned with global climate and development goals.

My career includes 15 years of media and communications experience with a proven track record in-house for The Queen, and for Westminster Abbey, in editorial management at the Evening Standard and Independent Group, as well as leading campaigns in strategic communications. However, much of my focus has been on the operations of the projects, departments and organisations I have worked in, and my ability to create and operationalise strategy and engage teams and stakeholders has been crucial to their success.

I am passionate about trying to make the world a fairer place and the people in it happier, by helping organisations and leaders multiply their positive impact and through promoting cross-cultural connectivity and diversity. I have lived and worked in six countries on four continents.

I am skilled in managing complex projects and events that require sound judgement, diplomacy and a calm, strategic head under pressure, both independently and as part of a team.

I am personable, have excellent contacts and have built trusting relationships throughout my career. I have lived and worked in six countries on four continents and am adept at embracing new situations and cultures.

These are my (out of date) musings on communications, media and the wider world of work and play, as well as some links to articles I wrote while working as a journalist. I live in and love London. I am a trustee of Tariro UK, a charity that funds young people in need in Zimbabwe to learn, to develop and to grow. I am on the advisory board of Auticon, an IT and compliance consulting business that exclusively employs adults on the autism spectrum as consultants.
