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

Within my Digital Enterprise Advisory Practice, we have created a dedicated Responsible Business team, to help our clients in achieving their UN Sustainable Development Goals

What training was particularly important to enabling your work?

Inspiration came through the L-Lab course of Peter Senge at MIT Sloan. Learning through engaging with subject matter experts globally in this area, including participation in webinars and workshops. Those SMEs were with organizations like UN-FCCC, FairTrade International and several MIT institutions like the MIT Climate & Sustainability Consortium, MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative and MIT Energy Initiative.

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

Be patient. Be strategic. Be creative. Think differently about finding opportunities. Embed yourself in relevant communities of interests, where you learn and contribute. Build your personal brand and become a thought leader.
