I have been an unemployed Humanities graduate, a professional librarian, an in-house consultant on all things to do with information and knowledge management, a corporate writer and a communications all-rounder. I am currently trying out ‘self-styled communications know all’. I work in the private and the non-profit sectors. My non-profit experience stretches from community-based organisations, via a small research-based organisation to a big international development NGO. I have qualifications in philosophy and international relations, library and information studies, communication for development, and a lot of certificates for sitting correctly at a desk and competent use of arm rests.
