Gillian is a design and strategy professional focused on hastening our transition to a low-carbon economy. She has experience in emerging markets driving projects in healthcare, social housing, and education. She began her career by establishing a social impact design studio creating design, photography, and film projects for social justice organisations in South Africa. She then established a design thinking division for a Cape Town-based non-profit, working on collaborative projects with government to demonstrate how participatory methods can improve public sector service delivery.

Gillian is passionate about improving sub-optimal systems that don’t fully serve people or planet. She is happiest when building more responsive, relevant, and resilient products and services.
