On Working At FSG
Working on the ground in Africa brought me face-to-face with the challenges for sustainable global development and the stark reality of the scale of unmet social needs—and then I read Porter and Kramer’s paper “Creating Shared Value” and I knew what I wanted to do, work with FSG. Helping corporate clients understand that their business can bring prosperity to society through delivering products and services to those that need them most as part of their core growth strategy empowers citizens as consumers, rather than beneficiaries of philanthropic gestures, and the results are far further reaching and long-lasting. I am humbled by the fact I have the opportunity to work with such an incredible team of driven people at FSG to deliver together with our forward thinking clients, innovative and cutting-edge strategies to realize business success through social good. I am excited about the opportunities FSG’s approach will continue to raise and the social impact we can create going forward.
