Communication Consultant, Good Comms

Chared's professional bio / interests

Hi, I’m Chared, a progressive idealist with 20+ years’ experience in journalism, development communication & corporate communication. Throughout my career, I have played different roles from individual contributor to team manager and trusted advisor. Having worked in a broad range of industries -- news & media, science & health, European-funded research and innovation, international development and technology (STEM) -- taught me flexibility, the value of listening, and how to work with various stakeholders. I found my purpose in internal communication because I believe that all external victory starts with inner work. Beyond work, I am a LeanIn volunteer & Circle Leader. I live in the Netherlands with my urban farmer husband and active toddler.
