Personal Profile

Training & Coaching Services for [not-just-for-profit] Start-ups through Saling2012Ltd.

My key strength is that I love to explore new ways of using my experiences and skills: I have just returned from a coaching visit to Indonesia and enjoyed learning about the context in which a company I mentor, operates.

I am using my academic background of researching, teaching and writing in innovative ways by supporting entrepreneurship and Startups. Mseminar 2y passion is to assist others, particularly women, in stepping out and starting new enterprises. seminar

My background is certainly multi-disciplinary and I work in many international settings, from South East Asia, via Europe to East Africa. I have managed teams of experts in diverse contexts including multi-country research projects, NGO interventions, the delivery of primary and maternal health care to refugees and  the provision of aviation and logistics support.

My academic work has focused on the employment of migrants, refugees, persons living with disabilities  and older workers. I currently work through my own company Saling2012 Ltd.
