A little bit about me

Hi, I'm Nancy. As a qualified engineer, I have over 10 years of experience working in sustainability & have supported a variety of businesses ranging from SMEs to large corporates. There is a lot of conflicting information out there when it comes to being more sustainable. If you're confused about terms like biodegradable, greenwash, and carbon neutral you're not alone. I'm here to help you learn the lingo & share a confident message with your clients. I genuinely believe that it's possible to balance purpose & profit, regardless of the size of your business. Your business can have a positive impact and my goal is to help you do just that .

"I feel now I have a much clearer plan for moving forward. What seemed complicated and was keeping me stuck, you really simplifed and made it understandable and manageable. You also always regularly check in and offer support and encouragement and not in an overwhelming way. You have a great personal touch. I would highly recommend your course."

"I like how easy to follow it is and the fact the videos aren’t too long. When I’ve done other courses with longer videos I tend to skip bits and miss important info so 3-4 minutes is about right for my attention span. It gives all the info and action you need."
