Today is International Women’s Day and we’d like to celebrate the occasion by highlighting the remarkable talent, skill and leadership of the women who work for our international business.
Two of our three Associate Directors are women; Emma Alesworth and Rebecca Woodward. Their longstanding skills and experience in Visitor Centre Planning, Wetland Ecology and Habitat Design have won us contracts all over the world, such as Tongli Interpretation Plan and Habitat Design in China, a Masterplan for a Wetland Centre in New York and, most recently, Exhibition and Habitat Design for a new Wetland Centre in the heart of Dubai at the UAE’s first Ramsar site, Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary.
Our Principal Consultant Anna Wilson, who joined the consultancy from the British Museum last summer, has been co-ordinating the vast and complex masterplanning documents for Nine Dragon Mouth (Jiulongkou) Wetland Park in China.
Senior Consultant and fellow recent recruit Beth Môrafon designed a brand new resource for a pilot WWT wetland education program in Madagascar. It will act as a template for further international learning programs.
Consultant Bea López has recently delivered a stakeholder engagement and wetland management project for the establishment of interpretation facilities at Humedal Tunquén (Chile), as well as community resources for Flight of the Swans.
Our full team are supported by incredible office management skills from Andrea Salkeld, who covers all the international travel logistics, as well as being an expert in some of our specialist design software. She is supported by our Excel and system software champion Shirley Baggs. Together they manage our accounts and run a tight ship.
Of course it goes without saying that we also have a fantastic team of men, who deliver outstanding international projects.
Watch out for highlights from all our team throughout the year.
