Consulting Manager

I work predominantly with our Financial and Professional Services sector clients, helping them manage their climate-related risks by disclosing against the Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosure recommendations. I also help them make sense of the dynamic policy landscape of ESG and what is expected of them by their stakeholders, as well as what frameworks and standards may best meet these needs.

Prior to joining Avieco, I worked at the Climate Disclosure Standards Board, working with global stakeholders in facilitating the necessary environment for mandatory ESG disclosure in capital markets. Before this, my time was spent in financial services and the built environment in accounting and ESG programme delivery roles, one of which was recognised at the ICAEW Finance for the Future awards for embedding sustainability culture change in finance teams.

I hold a BA and MSc from the University of Sheffield and University College London respectively, both in accounting and finance, where my research focussed on ESG issues in accounting theory and practice. As well as this, I am a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and certified with the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board.

it's personal.

We get that change is not easy. But we must be brave, challenge old ways, set new habits, embrace new thinking.
