I am a celebrated connector, experienced international development consultant, social change maker in residence and podcaster from Nairobi. I bring people together and as co-lead of Africa Podfest bring the best of Africa in podcasting to the world. I speak to audiences around the world about using their research, voice and platform to create community change. Using film and mixed media, I have led other innovative projects in the African advocacy space mobilising new media to bring community partners together for women and girls’ empowerment. I am on the Board of The Action Foundation Kenya focused on inclusive education for children and young people living with disabilities.
I give speeches and talks on:
a) Community building: podcasts, campaigns, advocacy and more require your firm grasp of what can be an tough goal. I bring people together for meaningful engagements that make change. I want more people to practice this, and spend a lot of time facilitating and training on community building.
b) Africa and podcasting. I co-direct Africa Podfest, where we elevate African podcasters and move the focus from exclusion to inclusion of African voices in the global podcasting ecosystem. I make it clear how to run a people-focused company for Africa while navigating podcast production, distribution and the quest for sustainability.
c) Becoming an effective Under-35 Nonprofit Board Member. I joined The Action Foundation in 2019 as a Board Member and I want every under-35 to engage in board membership now.
d) I cut my teeth as an advocacy, partnerships and communications consultant focused on media &public health in Africa. Working in international development, social enterprise and across rural, urban and periurban parts of Africa is possible. Let us talk about how.
I want to help you achieve the results you’re after.
