About:

_AJC0027.JPG

I want to make a positive impact on the planet and society and to help companies to achieve the same.

 

All my clients have been through word or mouth, so this website isn't actually very important:-) My clients tell their friends. 

Our long term future, and the B Corp process, can get us down so I try to make things light hearted and fun, if not downright quirky, (but all the time aiming to be professional and the best we can be.  To date, with every client, we have gone for leadership status.  Why be a follower, or net neutral when you can be net positive?  It's much better for business, and the planet, and society.)

Company values are:

  • Integrity

  • Leadership

  • Kindness

  • Fun

  • Do the right thing

 

I was 16 years at Coca-Cola Europe, becoming Commercial Leadership Manager for Europe before creating the role of Customer Sustainability Director for Europe, the first commercial role for Sustainability within The Coca-Cola Company globally.
