My approach to human rights due diligence - developed over many years of work with global corporations - is to be both ‘business pragmatic’ and principled.

In doing this work with companies, my objective is to help improve the lives of as many people as possible.

I prefer to work with companies on a longer-term basis, drawing on previously agreed hours/days of my time as required by the company.

This can be a coaching format with check-in-discussions, or working together - on demand - on concrete work packages (development/review of policies, implementation of a risk assessment, trainings, review of specific processes etc.).

My clients value that this model is highly flexible and resource efficient.

Of course, fixed-term projects (see portfolio below) are also an option.
