Who is BoomCircle?

My fundamental belief is that every organisation has the potential to have a positive impact across it’s ‘triple bottom line’ of profit, people and planet. My passion in life is to help each of my clients  reach their full ‘triple bottom line’ potential.

Born and raised in South Africa, I became aware of the inequality in the world from a very young age. My young mind couldn’t make sense of it, beyond becoming determined to do something about it when I was older. This is ultimately what led me to start BoomCircle.

The Journey

To make a change in the world, I thought a good place to start would be to learn more about the most powerful nation at the time - The United States. I studied for a BA in American Studies at Kings college London, with a year abroad at UC Berkeley. During my year abroad I became aware of how some businesses were starting to use there business models as a force for good - to spread value through their supply chain and not concentrate it within a small group of shareholders. My exact thought at the time was: “If I could inspire the next Bill Gates to adopt this way of thinking - what a huge positive impact that could make!” And so the seed for BoomCircle was planted.

After graduating in 2007, I spent 4 years learning more about Corporate Social Responsibility in my role as Marketing Manager for Ethical Corporation Magazine. Through these years, I became more and more convinced of the untapped potential each company had to influence positive change within their supply chains. Especially, those with products that connected the richest and the poorest people on the planet, like fresh produce and electronics.

A desire to learn more about this potential (and a passion for fresh fruit!) took me to rural Herefordshire in 2011, where I spent 6 years with Haygrove, an international berry and cherry company, as PA to the Chairman, Project Developer and ultimately Group Sustainability Manager.

With a number of years experience in in marketing, sustainability and strategic business support I started BoomCircle in 2015. BoomCircle’s purpose is to inspire businesses to to think differently and help them make ‘good stuff’ happen. My aim is to help organisations get to grips with the environmental and social impact of their operations, navigate risk and create value throughout their supply chain.  

PARTNERS
