B Leader bio

I'm a sustainable futures educator and interpreter equipping leaders with the beyond-business knowledge and learning tools to lead the transition to a sustainable future.

I offer strategic education, mentoring and foresight to leaders, educators and advisors in professional services, with a special focus on creativity and design.

Following 20 years in the creative/design industries, I completed an interdisciplinary sustainable development MSc with distinction, which strengthened my creative skills to see what lies ahead and provided inspirational tools to navigate it. Since then, my career has evolved from internationally-acclaimed product innovation and future concepts for world-class events, to futures skills and foresight for inspired leadership.

"Carra’s expertise was invaluable in providing us with guidance as we began our sustainability journey.”

"The report Carra compiled was very fair and honest, it has helped us to focus our goals moving forward.”

"Carra was a great sounding board and I thoroughly enjoyed learning from her.”

"Carra has given us some clear next steps to continue to progress our sustainability programme.”

“I appreciated Carra’s openness and willingness to chat through all areas of our business.”

"Working through the BCorp assessment with Carra provided a different lens when thinking about our company and its purpose. It's not easy to quickly understand something new or understand the landscape of a new organisation quickly. Yet this is what Carra was able to achieve from our first meeting."

"Carra takes a considered approach to how we operate, the practicalities of what we do, our mission and impact the organisation has in the communities we operate. Constructively challenges our thinking as an organisation, discussing how we evidence and back up statements and practices both internally as well as our core social impact. Sessions with Carra also sparked a number of internal conversations within our organisation in which we ended up challenging our thinking and current practices, why we have them in place, and questioning whether they are robust and fit for purpose."
