Biography

Meredith joined CISL after a long career in the private sector and is now a CISL Programme Director leading the delivery of our Digital Learning portfolio of high quality, high impact online certificate courses for professionals. Meredith’s motto is 'live and lead with purpose' through placing positive impact on people, nature, and climate at the heart of business models and systems. She believes private-private sector collaboration is an imperative to create a future that is fairer, healthier, kinder, and infinitely sustainable.

Prior to joining the CISL team, Meredith completed CISL’s Business Sustainability Management certification and was an assessor for CISL’s Sustainable Marketing, Media and Creative online course.

Meredith’s career spans global strategy and marketing leadership roles from bases in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and now the UK. She’s worked for category leader brands largely in financial services including in mass market B2C cards and loyalty programs, enterprise market data providers, institutional investment, and for niche start-ups and scale-ups in fintech, regtech, and paytech. She also led marketing globally for a corporate L&D mobile microlearning start-up based out of Boston. 

Since then, Meredith has pivoted from being a ‘business-as-usual’ commercial strategist and marketing practitioner to focus on applying those skills through the lens of sustainability and thereby playing an instrumental role in scaling solutions that enables the private and public sector to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to take action and make a positive impact on people, nature and climate long into the future.
