Project Consulting

Does your organization have great ideas of the kinds of development and research work it can do, but struggle to make the connections with strategic funders, use the right kind of language in project proposals, or provide the right quality outputs to secure continuous international funding?


Working between the UK and US, Turkey, Azerbaijan and Chile, with big donors and small companies and organizations, I gained the outlook, languages and practical skills to help my clients bridge these distances. 


As a consultant, I help translate your organization's goals and needs to meet the demands of an international market. Using language experience and cultural sensitivity, I enable you to raise your project quality to a global level, winning the confidence of your international funders and increasing your social impacts. My primary expertise is in migration, livelihood and labor issues, as well as anti-corruption projects.
