About me

To summarise who I am, I am a few different things: I am a multidisciplinary international policy & branding professional who absolutely loves her job. If you ever want to geek out about creative industries, the rising role of tech/digital, or cultural diplomacy, I will cancel all my plans and rock out with you. I have been fortunate to work in the start-up industry in the MENA/Balkan regions, run a digital platform with a readership of 6-million as Deputy Editor-In-Chief out of Hong Kong, and be a part of a high achieving team in two United Nations deployments. I am the founder of the Growth & Grace Collective, a women-led network to connect, inspire and empower females. Operating both online and offline, we seek to remove the financial burden with networking and professional development for women. This year I seek to improve the social mobility of our global network through various mini-series we are beginning to develop, on negotiation, authenticity and public speaking. I am a speaker. I do keynote addresses, facilitate workshops, speak on panels, and am featured on podcasts. The most popular topic organisations ask me to speak on is networking, authenticity and branding in relation to women's empowerment. I am an avid traveller to unorthodox places, tech enthusiast, environmentally conscious citizen, nonfiction reader, and a shameless outfit repeater. READY TO TALK?
