About me

Over the years working across international media corporations, grassroot projects and social enterprise start-ups, I’ve become compelled by business’s potential to create transformative environmental impact, alongside commercial success. I’m also hugely motivated by the pressing need for pioneering creativity, communication and collaboration to make this happen. I spent the first 15 years of my career leading global media partnerships: from understanding my clients' needs, collaborating on defining a common strategy and creative solutions to engage with our audience, to executing complex multi-million $ deals across all continents, various brands and platforms. With an indefectible optimism and insatiable desire to making a positive difference to the world, I have used my time in the corporate sphere to broaden my spectrum of expertise. I have acquired solid credentials in sustainability management, corporate responsibility strategy, stakeholder management, partnership with non-for profit and staff engagement. In 2019 I have decided to channel my commitment to the climate cause with the launch of my own environmental and entrepreneurial venture, SitSpot, a platform for conscious travellers. Recently, I have co-written a travel book dedicated to train travel, and I have trained as a sustainability auditor for accommodation. I am currently offering my skills in partnership, branding and video production and team management to organisations seeking a passionate, creative and result driven project manager.
