Holly is a business strategist and opportunity spotter who gets her kicks helping good people to do important things. Through the course of her 15 year career, she has built and championed propositions and partnerships within corporates, charities and foundations, in the UK and in Africa.
An engineer at heart, Holly is a natural problem solver. She loves a good ‘strategise’ but is just as comfortable rolling up her sleeves and making it happen. The B Corp certification process plays perfectly into this combo – encouraging big picture thinking to maximise potential, but also requiring the detailed work to make this a reality.
Holly’s career travels have taken her from the world’s largest trading floor at Deutsche Bank, to London’s successful Olympic and Paralympic bid and on to Africa with Barclays. She now works freelance so that she can have her cake and eat it, combining fulfilling work with time at home with her kids.
Her clients include the innovation foundation Nesta, where she has been helping small businesses get a better deal from the fintech revolution, and the consultancy Skating Panda, with whom she has worked with a FTSE 100 insurance company in Africa, an international NGO empowering teenage girls and a youth unemployment charity in Elephant & Castle.
