A yellow-red, ENFP, vatta-pitta, stand-up comedian and ex-organic farmer…I’m passionate about collaboration, tech-for-good, EDI (equity, diversity & inclusion) and the SDGs.
I am head of partnerships, sustainability and EDI at Maji – an innovative holistic wellbeing provider. With a combination of cutting-edge tech, open banking, tailored financial education, coaching, advice and behavioural psychology, Maji offers a powerful way to improve financial health & wellbeing.
And with the current economic situation, it has never been more needed. The president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists recently stated that the cost-of-living crisis poses a threat of pandemic proportions to the nation’s mental health. Over 100,000 people in England every year attempt to take their own life whilst struggling with debt, and this figure is set to rise as the crisis continues.
‘𝘔𝘢’ ‘𝘫𝘪’ stands for ‘𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘴𝘵’ and ’𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘱𝘦𝘤𝘵’ – values that are the cornerstone of Maji’s business… providing trusted, independent support that respects the needs of every individual. I love working with such a diverse and dedicated team who believe in business as a force for good and are passionate about making the world more diverse, inclusive and sustainable. To that end, we are proud to be members of D&I Leaders, the Sustainable Business Partnership, Techies Go Green, the Environmental Business Network and the Eco-Friendly Web Alliance
We are also honoured to be signatories of the 2025 Fintech Pledge and Make My Money Matter’s Green Pensions Charter. The Fintech Pledge is a campaign to drive 10 million actions that improve consumers’ financial resilience by 2025. The Green Pension Charter taps into the hidden superpower of our pensions to build a healthy world in which to retire.
A major focus in 2023 is linking EDI with financial wellbeing and we are currently working with several expert partners on this initiative…watch this space!
What is Maji?
Maji is a complete financial wellness platform enabling you to track and improve your financial wellbeing.
I’m also non-exec director for BiasProof – a new initiative that will change the way businesses worldwide approach EDI.
