I support expats, leaders and field personnel in international development institutions, non-profit sector organizations and social change initiatives. My main focus is to build capacities to better address today’s global challenges and to support individuals and organizations to thrive in new, sustaining ways.
Over the past 20 years I have worked in the private sector, with government organizations, with civil society actors and supranational institutions across three continents. My career included working in Uganda, New York, South Sudan and Afghanistan. Collaborating on continent-wide organizational change initiatives as well as with many stakeholders and change agents across cultures, I know first-hand what it feels like to live in volatile environments, to be responsible for people and to work with resources that don’t always stretch to meet the size of what’s required.
My work, methodologies, attitudes and worldviews are shaped by these experiences: underpinned by the principles of equity, collaboration, acceptance and compassion, and informed by what it means to engage right at the edge where plans and decisions face the messiness of reality. I will support you with all my heart to explore the inner landscape of your unfolding, to identify new ways of orienting your work towards ever-increasing impact, and how you can give your life, relationships and organization new directions, vitality and purpose.
