After a long career in the UK public sector and in management consulting, I started working in development by chance in 2012. I have stayed in the industry ever since, and have taken on roles in advocacy strategy and delivery, inclusive business modeling, and latterly in a programme aimed at the development/delivery of market systems solutions to age-old problems in the agribusiness sector. I started my career as a lawyer, but eventually worked in the UK public sector, mainly in analyst roles - systems, operations and management. I eventually moved into the private sector as a management consultant working in outsourced government services and infrastructure projects. I am an alumnus of the London School of Economics, University of Nigeria, and Warwick University Business School. I currently live and work in Nigeria, mainly out of Lagos, but with project operations dispersed nationwide.
