Current work

I'm currently working with a wide variety of international organisations including the European Cancer Organisation, the European Prostate Cancer Patients' Alliance (Europa Uomo), the Paul Scherrer Institute, the European School of Oncology and the International Federation of Social Workers.


Closer to home, my clients include London Gypsies and Travellers, the Deep Sea Conservation Coalition and Macmillan Cancer Support.
