About Me

Both my corporate and community work has equipped me to advise young people on how best to make decisions to help with them with their chosen career path. Conversely, I also work with students who are not yet sure what employment they want to pursue. I work with them in choosing subjects that allow them to keep their options open, whilst exploring what wider experience they can gain to support them in a range of sectors, that also helps them narrow down their options.

  • 30 years experience of management, fund-raising, finance, business development, project management and marketing in London and Asia.
