Project Finance

Background 

I joined Forum in December 2017. My responsibilities cover most aspects of financial planning within the organisation starting with supporting delivery teams deliver projects on budget to managing how that information ladders up to the various different levels of the organisation to help ensure we deliver maximum impact whilst remaining financially sustainable.

Prior to joining Forum, I spent 6 years at PwC working in a variety of roles in Assurance, Internal Strategy and Regulatory Consulting. In this time I qualified as a chartered accountant and also took a year out to do some wandering around the world. 

It was during this time that my interest in environmental and sustainability issues picked up, where, lucky enough to spend some time diving in South East Asia, I would emerge after each dive with pocketfuls of plastic waste I had picked up. When the opportunity to join Forum came along, I jumped at the chance to be part of an organisation with such an exciting vision for solving important problems and shaping the future through system-wide change.

What floats your boat outside of work? 

Scuba Diving and Hiking are two of my principal loves, and so naturally I live in… Camden. Here you might often find me strolling down Regent’s Canal or engaging in some sport in some way, for example playing Cricket (badly) in the summer. I also tend to escape back to the West Country when I can to the clean Devon air I grew up in. This year I want to learn Spanish and Kayak the Norwegian fjords.
