Since joining NEF Consulting in 2015, Anke has worked on impact assessment projects with a wide range of private, public and third sector clients in the UK and internationally. With a strong background in triple-bottom line assessment and reporting, Anke’s particular passion lies in socio-economic impact areas, including wellbeing, place making, local impact assessment (including supply chains) and Social Return on Investment (SROI).
Anke delivers bespoke and open training on Value for Money, Measuring & Improving Well-being and Local Multiplier (LM3), and supports policy makers and businesses through practical advice on how to integrate sustainability into their day-to-day work and to improve performance. In addition to her consultancy work, she is an ESCR funded PhD scholar at the University of Surrey, researching employment quality in service sector employment.
Previously Anke managed the innovative Total Impact Measurement and Management (TIMM) project for The Travel Foundation in partnership with PwC, which measured TUI Group’s holistic impact in Cyprus. The project was recently finalist in the WTTC Tourism for Tomorrow Awards’ Innovation category.
Before dedicating her career to supporting people and organisations on their sustainability journey, Anke managed travel businesses in Germany and the UK for almost two decades, and completed a Masters in Tourism, Environment and Development at King’s College, London. Understanding clients’ needs and collaboratively building knowledge and creating solutions is still an important part of her role, and the one she enjoys most.
Outside work, Anke loves exploring new places – with Bhutan currently leading the list of countries she finds most inspiring. She recharges through Pilates and running.
