An activist, convener, connector, coach, strategist, creative thinker and mother I’m passionate about authentic change and the value we all bring to create positive impact. 25 years of working for a wide range international organizations in the private, public and voluntary sectors, including the CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food, the European Commission, Save the Children, UNICEF and the OHCHR. I have published notably on outcome-based research-for-development and human rights based approaches to development. Based in my adopted home of Paris, I have also spent considerable periods of time in Asia, the Middle East and across the African Continent.
My experience working as a convener and curator of change has convinced me that the power of collective thinking and resulting action can determine a just, equitable and flourishing future. Harnessing this collective power ensures that the momentum generated by collective thinking translates into concrete results. Dialogue and pioneering courageous action can address specific complex and vital challenges and see their impacts scaled up resulting in exciting, positive ambitious transformation.
