I love drawing, and I love helping groups of people work together with utility and joy. I try to combine these in my work.
I had a decade of fundraising roles in the charity and social enterprise sectors in the UK, Mongolia and Mumbai, mainly working with corporates and high-net worth individuals.
In most of these jobs I tended to get drawn to fixing problems at the intersection of information and people.
As a natural visual learner and the 'arty one' in the office I started to explore and use visual techniques for doing everyday work.
I took the leap in September 2015 to making this into something more.
What I'm good at
understanding things from other people's point of view
quickly grasping the interplay between organisational culture and individual behaviour
organising events and logistics
facilitating and meaningful convening
games, creativity and joy
drawing out ideas, concepts, systems and relationships
creating useful visuals for explaining, welcoming, including or highlighting topics or people
summarising and structuring information
writing clearly and concisely
