About me
Entrepreneurial, driven and creative multidisciplinary Strategist dedicated to building successful strategic communications, digital transformation, tech for good, organisational change management, sustainable development and encouraging environmentally conscious decision-making. I consistently aspire to build human-centric solutions using the power of technology and an understanding of our core human needs and pain points to drive and create innovative strategies and products for the greater good. Bringing together a creative, collaborative and highly driven team of thinkers, makers and doers is paramount to the success of a brand, organisation and beyond. My aim is to transform organisations into success stories by building integrated marketing and business strategies, and implementing insight and data-driven creative solutions for seemingly unsolvable problems. My understanding of evolving technologies, multi-sector knowledge, hybrid skill set, experience as a creative and interest in behavioural psychology furthers my ability to discover new opportunities within projects- to determine the right course of action for the task at hand. I've worked with companies from a diverse range of sectors: UNICEF, RBS, NatWest, Diageo, Samsung, Unilever, Pfizer, Janssen (oncology and cardiology), Novartis Global (rheumatology and dermatology), GSK (vaccinations), Allergan (ophthalmology), P&G Health, Helsinn US (oncology), Shell (Make the Future), Vodafone, EE, O2, Carphone Warehouse, La Española Olive Oil, Grace Foods, Carabao, Tangerine Confectionary, HF Holidays, Mitsubishi Electric, Oh My Love London, The Roseate (Bird Group Luxury Resort, New Delhi), Virgin Media and Amazon Music.

    IndoGenius & UKIERI Study India Award 2013British Council
    I was one of 200 candidates in the UK to win a placement on the IndoGenius and UKIERI Study India Program in 2013. The program included the opportunity to culturally immerse ourselves in Indian culture. We travelled to Mumbai, New Delhi, Amritsar and Agra, and explored the economic state of the country, the corporate world (by talking to several professionals from all sectors), including Fashion, Music and Finance industries, observed various religious ceremonies, and learned about India's relationship with Great Britain. Furthermore, we visited the most prominent sights and areas of each city such as the Dharavi slum, Taj Mahal and the Golden Temple in Amritsar, and we took some Hindi classes. It also included an internship at the Dusit Devarana Resort, where I had the chance to work in all departments of the resort before it was due to open in October 2013. https://studyindia.co.uk/
