I have been involved in sustainability for over a decade, and am passionate about helping organisations to think beyond the financials. I believe “Integrated Thinking” which means taking a holistic view on value creation provides better outcomes for all stakeholders over the long term and as such means that our collective futures are assured. The road is not easy, but this is what makes it exciting. My personal vision is “Pioneering to make life better” and this is what drives me to make a difference.
