Communications and marketing specialist. An accomplished and versatile project manager, with strong skills in stakeholder engagement and business development.Contact https://www.linkedin.com/in/camilla-barnes-71b92539
I have been a B Leader (or B Corp consultant) since 2017 and, to date, have supported 23 businesses on their B Corp journeys (7 of whom have become certified), from a variety of sectors, ranging from service-based accountants and marketing businesses to businesses with long supply chains in the food and clothing industry.
I support businesses with all phases of the B Corp journey: from discovering their baseline, through the social and environmental improvements to prepare for certification and during the verification to post-certification support in embedding, impact reporting and continuous improvement.
I am convinced that by moving business models away from only shareholder-focused to all stakeholder-focused, we can collectively make the world a better and more sustainable place.
I am a communications and impact specialist with 12 years’ expertise in international sustainable development (sustainable agriculture & natural resource management, ecotourism, sustainable livelihoods) and business & innovation.
An accomplished and versatile project manager, with strong skills in stakeholder engagement and business development.
I have a BA in Spanish and French and an MA in Latin American Development, focusing on sustainability, social policy and human rights.
