Neli has over fifteen years’ experience working with individuals and organisations across continents and sectors. Her early career was shaped in the sugar industry in Southern Africa at a time when the sector’s dependence on expatriate staff for critical skills shortages was under severe scrutiny. Since then, helping organisations identify, attract and develop talent has been a passion.
Now working as consultant, Neli draws on her own managerial experience of leading and delivering change, integration and performance improvement programmes. She has been involved in numerous projects defining talent management strategy, organisational design, restructuring, executive and management assessment utilising a range of Bioss processes and tools. She has also facilitated collaborations between UK logistics organisations and higher education providers to address management skills gaps.
Neli holds a MBA degree in CSR from Nottingham University Business School and a BA Humanities degree from the University of Swaziland. She has also been a recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship for the Hubert H Humphrey Fellowship programme at Michigan State University. She is an Associate member of the CIPD.
