About Me

I have 29 years' experience working in Africa's cotton, textiles and apparel value chain.  Initially as a trade unionist in South Africa; then, from 2004 onwards, as a development consultant working with various Southern and Eastern African governments and private sectors.  I find it rewarding creating development interventions that help cotton, textiles and apparel stakeholders to better processes, improve productivity, increase sales, and add investment.  My full bio can seen on DEVEX or LinkedIn.
