Systematic, learning, measurable
In recent years, I have developed a sound appreciation of what it takes for an organisation to be accountable towards its target groups both in terms of policy and practice, but also the need to support this process through an independent analysis. As such, I wish to bring my experience from the sector as well as my experience as a focal point for CHS certification to support organisations in identifying key areas to become more accountable within their operations.
