Fanny started at Collaborate in 2017 as a research consultant and is now Practice Development Manager. She combines external project work with managing the development of our consultancy practice, including leading the Research and Project Management team. Fanny has worked with a range of people and places to build collaborative approaches to social change, designing and delivering culture change and learning work with local partners and community members across whole systems, places and organisations.

Before joining Collaborate, Fanny worked at Dialogue by Design as a data analyst and in the research strategy team at Cancer Research UK. While working at an NGO in South Africa, Fanny engaged with civil society groups, government and business to initiate collaborative projects for community-based health hubs. 

In their own words:

I joined Collaborate with an interest in what conditions are needed to enable collaboration and how we can support each other to build the foundation for a more relational, human and collaborative society. I have learnt a lot during my 5 years at Collaborate and I am able to support people and organisations through bringing new thinking and perspectives, and creating spaces to build relationships and surface insights. This, together with the ongoing work to understand and support our own organisational growth, is one of the things I enjoy most about my role.
