Advisory Lead, Canada & Sustainability Lead

How is your job related to climate and/or sustainability?

I advise clients on how to take the ESG strategy and make it real – connect to SDG’s, measure, get the data and report on it

What training was particularly important to enabling your work?

I felt my Finance training at a “Big 4” audit firm really helps me understand the concepts around data & measurement etc. Also my understanding of connecting business outcomes to Technology based on consulting experience.

What advice do you have for people looking for careers in climate and/or sustainability? 

You need to be able to merge data/analytics skills with business acumen and strategy. I think there will be different streams – like engineering sustainable products/processes; data/reporting skills; sustainable experiences, etc.
