I lead Swahili Blue Consulting; helping companies in developed and emerging markets increase their performance by focusing on their people.

I am a specialist HR consultant with a track record spanning 28 years across the commercial and international development sectors. A formally trained PWC consultant I am also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development in the UK. My successes include commercial projects for major brands such as Diageo, Cable and Wireless and Digicel completed in the UK, the Caribbean, Latin America and Africa and highlights her extensive telecommunications expertise. Projects with international development agencies, non-profit and public sector organisations include Oxfam Great Britain, Department for International Development (DFID) and Governance and Management Services International (GMSI).

In my spare time I am a trustee of the Kaloko Trust a UK-based charity which works to relieve poverty and raise livelihoods in rural communities in Zambia, southern Africa.

In addition to voluntary activities when time allows I like to engage in my other passion, interior design.

Proud mother of 1 daughter, Sarah.
