What drives you? I am driven by the knowledge that humans have contributed to one of the greatest threats to our planet and to our future – climate change. While we have contributed to the problem, we also have a great opportunity to develop solutions, and I believe business must be at the forefront of transitioning to a sustainable future. I am motivated to help business understand the value of sustainability and support them in their journey to improve the environmental and social outcomes within the locations that they operate.
What projects do you work on that you love or are most passionate about and why? I enjoy working on projects where a client has a genuine commitment to improve its social and environmental performance. Helping a business to identify and managing their impacts is something I am deeply passionate about, and I love seeing the progress in a client and the constant learning associated with helping to develop a sustainability strategy. This is something that reminds me that change is possible, and business can be a leader in creating a sustainable future.
Career highlight/game changing project/something that made a big impact: Graduating from my Masters with a high distinction average is a highlight in my academic career, and reflects my eagerness to learn and build my knowledge in the sustainability space. Professionally, delivering a sustainability strategy to board members during an interdisciplinary consulting project really helped develop my skills in consulting, and seeing the engagement from the client assured me of the capability to influence business decision making for a better future.
