The following is a snapshot of our international network of senior consultants.

His primary clients include the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) where he has been actively working with the shelter department since 2005 and the International Rescue Committee (IRC) which is one of the lead agencies for Information management for the WASH Cluster. Neil brings to his clients a thorough understanding of emergency response coordination and how the practices of information management, assessments, and monitoring can complement strategic decision making. We know Neil from our work with the IFRC.

As a facilitator and trainer, Sarah is rapidly at ease with diverse clients and with a wide range of specialist subjects. Focusing on support for clear thinking, clear communication and team effectiveness, she draws additional energy and inspiration from the use of visual thinking tools and her passion for the mountains. We have worked with Sarah in a range of facilitation and graphic recording projects, including UNAIDS and SwissPeace.
