My Experience

Sean

My core skill is being able to see the forest for the trees – to look at a complex problem and to see what needs to be done to resolve it.

Coach | Mentor | Facilitator | Trainer | Consultant

I bring over 25 years experience in international development, including a decade coaching activists and facilitating leadership development. I have consulted for numerous businesses and not for profit organisations across Africa, the Middle East, the European Union and the United States.

My extensive leadership experience spans three distinct phases: initially, consulting to visionary leaders to effectively implement their ideas; then, establishing and leading new initiatives on a global scale; and more recently, mentoring other leaders through both the establishment and scale-up phases of enterprise development.

I co-founded a pan-African leadership development initiative, Amahoro Africa, and a global leadership development initiative, Inspired Community. I established Strategic Impact, a consultancy based in Africa and Europe and am co-founder of Greater Good, a new venture based in the United States.

Over three decades, I have worked with the highest levels of leadership, including consultancy with various African Presidents and global civil society leaders.

I bring a unique set of cross-disciplinary experience covering business, systems design, activism, leadership mentoring, spirituality, organisational growth, financial management, and personal formation. I hold an MPhil and I am an Associate Certified Coach with the International Coaching Federation.

My current civil society clients cluster in three broad thematic areas: gender-based violence, conflict transformation and sustainable livelihoods.
