Tracey was one of the experts who helped startups get pitch ready as part of the Startups For Sustainable Development program from Google.
Tracey delivered great value to the entrepreneurs and we received a lot of positive feedback from her engagement - highlighting both her expertise but also her social skills.

My purpose is to work with game-changing tech startup founders who transform
our future to improve business and make peoples' lives easier.
Why? My late mother was an entrepreneur. Only after her passing, being inspired by
my time helping her run her business, her diverse career
did I take the brave move to leave my then 22-year Corporate career.
Why ? to help entrepreneurs like my mother successfully get through their
business foundation years to survive, thrive and reach continuous growth.
I share my unique multi-dimensional, multi-sectoral, international strategy and enterprise-wide experience
to help founders increase the chances of investment and scalability.
As a former KPMG Director and operator, I bring the focus across the whole enterprise
to improve business strategy, financial management, go-to-market, governance, operations,
equality, diversity and inclusion (ED&I) and culture, inclusive leadership,
environmental, social, governance (ESG), finance, risk and regulation, and future-proofing organisations.
I am qualified in Chartered Accountancy,
programme management (PMP),
Prince 2 agile,
and mental fitness coaching.
I have over two decades of professional experience in various sectors working with hundreds of businesses of various sizes from startups to UK listed plc companies and across many countries.
I bring you the innovation and growth oversight needed at the board level.
Ensuring we grow and make a success of the tech, creator and gig economy in a post-Brexit and pandemic world.
