What is your greatest professional achievement?

Overseeing the establishment and growth of Cardno’s Myanmar Office, managing more than 750 staff in remote and challenging locations across the country within 12 months.

How is it making a difference?

We are providing critical tertiary infrastructure to under-served and conflict-affected communities throughout the country, through processes that empower communities and historically marginalised groups.

What is your Service Line and why are you passionate about it?

International development effectiveness – thinking about how we can maximise the positive impact of our support to partners and communities. It is a complex and highly contested field, but when we get it right, we can make a major positive difference on the lives of project beneficiaries.

Why Cardno?

Cardno walks the walk on ‘reputation-led growth’. We work to high standards, with integrity, and genuine commitment to improving the lives of others, and it attracts staff who share those values.
