I joined the Global Chartered Governance Institute as a part-time Policy Advisor in June 2021. Prior, I served as Ambassador of Zimbabwe to Zambia and Permanent Representative to COMESA for six years, having worked in accounting, governance, trade & development areas for more than 30 years. As a governance consultant, my focus is on transformative leadership and governance, with special interest in building strong inclusive institutions in Africa. Through research, advocacy, and publications, I developed concept notes on Corporate Governance of SMEs, the Catalytic Role of SME Corporate Governance in the African Free Trade Area (the AfCFTA) as well as one  on Circular Economy for Victoria Falls in relation to diversification of economic activities, among other projects. I sit on the board of Island Hospice & Healthcare in Harare.
