Works

As a consultant who works independently, or joins teams and projects, as well as being experienced in setting up and running projects – there are various ways I can help you.

At the core of what I offer is a creative climate lens, underpinned by strong technical knowledge to enable you to maximise your strategy to better understand your risks and opportunities, aligned around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement.

With plenty of climate COPs under my belt, I can also help on climate policy and give oversight on international climate change negotiations (UNFCCC, Paris Agreement and Article 6, Nationally Determined Contributions etc.) I am also following sustainable finance closely and can keep you updated with research and briefings. For campaigns, I can help on creative thinking, identify the potential of a story and advise on communications, outreach and strategic partnerships. Finally, if you are setting up a new intiative, I have been closely involved in setting up quite a few successful intiatives in the UK and globally, from start to scale.

FEES – Day and project rate is variable and for negotiation. Please get in contact if you want to find out more.
