We are proud to work in partnership with our experienced and principled associates:

Her international career spans working in information technology, sustainable development and more recently business psychology. This breadth of experience enables Anne to work across sectoral, organisational, functional and cultural boundaries to help envision, articulate and catalyse opportunities for change.
