Over the past 3 years we've built a network of over 90 freelancers and grown our core team.
I'm a sustainability professional who specialises in working with SMEs. My expertise includes:
📈 Sustainability Strategy - helping you understand your current environmental impact and identify areas for improvement. Once we've identified those areas, I work with you to develop a sustainability action plan that fits your unique needs.
🤝 Workshop Facilitation: I also love facilitating workshops 🎓 for companies and schools. It's an great way to get everyone on board with sustainability and help build a culture of sustainability within the organisation. I've worked with companies like eBay to deliver educational workshops on sustainable business practices.
Over the past 30 years, I have created and facilitated leadership, staff and community engagement and education programmes with companies ranging from Arup, Kingspan, Scottish Widows, Lloyds TSB, NOW TV, BSkyB, City Building Glasgow, World Rugby, Baillie Gifford & Co, Historic Environment Scotland, Social Enterprise Scotland, WSREC and Scottish Government.
My journey from Brazil to the United States and Germany has equipped me to address challenges faced by the Global South and North. With a Bachelor's in International Relations and an MBA in Sustainable Development and Circular Economy, I excel at developing innovative, solution-driven strategies.
⚙️As Global Sustainability Program Manager at a leading logistics company, my diverse experiences have facilitated professional growth and recognition as an emerging leader. My expertise in Human Resources, Diversity, and Inclusion offers invaluable insights into corporate sustainability practices.
I am a Chartered Engineer, Chartered Environmentalist and Chartered Resources and Wastes Manager with over 40 years experience in consulting.
I am a recognised expert in sustainable development related to major infrastructure and the built environment having delivered sustainability assessments, targets and action plans for major projects and programmes internationally, including the London 2012 Olympic Park. Over the last 30 years I have developed and used sustainability models to assess numerous organisations and projects, including developing the Arup SPeAR® framework, and worked with clients to manage business transformation in terms of environmental and sustainable development.
In addition to my work with business, I have a long running relationship with the University of Birmingham from lecturing through to leading research projects. In recognition of my innovative work in sustainable development, I had the honour of being conferred as Honorary Professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Birmingham, a position I held from 2006 to 2012, when I became a part-time employee of the University.
For the last six years I have led the highly successful ERDF funded £4.2m ARLI collaborative research project, working with over 230 SMEs to identify waste streams, or other materials that could be transformed into higher value goods. We also looked at process improvements to avoid low-carbon production of materials, the development of innovative new products and how SMEs can support the Circular Economy.
Even though I have been promoting sustainability for over 30 years, I am still passionate about creating sustainable change and helping others along their sustainable pathway.
I have designed modules and facilitated learning for Executives and Leaders on team building, language, soft skills and behavioural change for companies like Accenture, Volkswagen, NOW TV, 3 G, Cox & Kings, Ocwen Financial, Cognizant to name a few.
