MSc Sustainability and Management
Place of Work: SAI Global
Position: Head of Marketing and Product Development
What does your current position involve and what do you love about it?
SAI Global provides organisations around the world with assurance services, compliance programmes and information management solutions for promoting good governance, risk and compliance. My role is to connect people to our products and services and develop new solutions to help businesses improve workflows.
How did you come to get that position?
With a strong publishing background at Granada Television and HarperCollins my Masters degree helped me move into the governance, risk and compliance (GRC) sector and help businesses investigate assuring and embedding sustainability.
How do you think your degree has helped you?
Over the past ten years sustainability has changed and progressed across many businesses but especially FMCG – the course gave me an excellent grounding, and from that, to explore evolutionary concepts such as ‘Beyond Sustainability’ and ‘Biomimicry’ and how businesses can think ahead.
Is there any advice you would give to current students?
Don’t forget the Professional Bodies in your chosen sector – I am a member of two very different organisations but it is amazing how their ethos converges into business practice and my area of GRC.
