My Career

Shaherazad Public Speaking


For most of my career so far I've been a conscientious retailer.  I've now made the switch to working within the conservation, heritage and cultural sector.  I have a growing belief in the positive power of post-capitalism and therefore over-consumption driven by retail is no longer something I feel I can support.


I've spent lots of time in operational, non-executive and executive roles.  Now I'm in the sphere of public engagement through igniting imagination and fearlessness.  Essentially, I'm joining all of you wonderful change-makers out there to enable a happy, healthy and peaceful world.


Where I work now

I am a Director at Europe's largest conservation charity where we protect and care for places so that people and nature can thrive.  Conservation, culture and heritage are at the core of the organisation where I work.

Where I've worked

I've been fortunate to have worked at some of the UK's leading brands.  From the Asda graduate scheme to non-executive Board positions at Housing Plus Group.  The sectors I've worked in have been Health & Beauty, Fashion and Food.
