Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)

With a background in high school teaching, working with non-profit organisations and a significant chapter as a social investment specialist in a corporate and investment bank, Yvette’s interest in sustainability has grown alongside her experience of different sectors and silos – and the people in all of them, who make change happen. Her facilitation style helps to level the playing field and connect people, so we can be more creative and find better solutions, together.



Based in Johannesburg, Yvette has enjoyed a relationship with CISL since March 2012, when a Sustainability Practitioners Programme motivated her to study further in this field. She completed the Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Value Chains, followed by the Masters in Sustainability Leadership. Yvette has been an assessor on the Business Sustainability Management course and was made a Senior Associate in 2020.
