Morel Fourman
Morel FourmanTrustee
My work is driven by a love for people and nature and an unstoppable commitment to making a difference – at scale. This is a self-observation, rather than a declaration.

I naturally see the opportunity for a shared win in diverse perspectives. I am experienced in designing processes and systems to reveal hidden patterns and shared interest, to large groups, institutions and networks. When interacting with leaders – I naturally invoke vision and ambition through inquiry into mandate, impact and scale.

I have provided strategy shaping advice to clients/partners ranging from the secretary general of an international trade body (for profit); to unemployed youth leaders in Africa, to AIESEC leaders – on how 70,000 members can partner governments to deliver the SDGs. Since 2000, I have helped shaping and delivering strategic NGO initiatives in Europe, Africa, MENA, Americas, China and India.
