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 am a communications and marketing specialist with 10 years working expertise in international sustainable development (sustainable agriculture & natural resource management, ecotourism, sustainable livelihoods) and research & innovation.
An accomplished and versatile project manager, with strong skills in stakeholder engagement and business development. I apply strategic thinking, in-depth analysis and creative problem solving to streamline business procedures and improve workflows.
I have a BA in Spanish and French and an MA in Latin American Development, focusing on sustainability, social policy and human rights. Over the past 10 years I have been responsible for communicating the impact of the most developed sustainable development NGO in Mexico on sustainable livelihoods in the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve, such as ecosystem services and eco-tourism businesses, as well as the funding and collaboration opportunities to innovative UK businesses via the government agency, Innovate UK.
As a B Leader, I support businesses to consider how responsible and sustainable their business models and purposes are, and look at the opportunities for improvement through the B Corp Impact Assessment process. I am interested in supporting businesses to go through the assessment, analysing their strengths and weaknesses, engaging internal and external stakeholders and providing business improvement and marketing consultancy. I am convinced that by moving business models away from shareholder-focused to stakeholder-focused, we can collectively make the world a better and more sustainable place. I am particularly interested in working with businesses in the South West England.
