Lisa is a vocal advocate of sustainability with a background in the private and third sectors. She believes that pursuing sustainability is increasingly becoming a critical success factor for businesses and organisations alike, as investors and donors increasingly prioritise social and environmental measures. The ability to understand and capture both the qualitative and quantitative value of sustainability differentiates them from their peers. It goes beyond reducing costs or improving a company’s image to open doors to new revenue streams, transform organizations to ensure future competitiveness and build stronger relationships with customers and constituents.
As a project manager and senior consultant in private sector, she led customers across a range of sectors to improve their business through the incorporation of new processes and technologies. Her expertise is in bringing together stakeholder groups to engage in their own transformation.
At Oxfam Great Britain, Lisa has worked in Oxfam’s Policy Research Team to couple environmental sustainability and social justice. Her work has been featured on the Oxfam blog and incorporated into conference presentations designed for audiences such as the UN General Assembly, DFID (USAID equivalent) and WWF.
