Key specialisms

Corporate governance

She regularly helps organisations to assess and improve their corporate governance. Felicia takes a transformational governance approach, which combines traditional corporate governance practices with sustainable strategies.

She most often works with organisations when there’s a change of strategy and a clear need to ensure that the governance structures will enable the organisation to deliver on that strategy or where there are critical reputational and legal risks. Her work typically involves advising on risks and recommending strategies to avert and mitigate such risks, as well as conducting governance reviews and providing implementation support on her recommendations for improvement (such as aligning policies and procedures. She also provides support in the development of enabling board behaviours and a strong organisational culture to help organisations govern for a sustainable future.

ESG and sustainability

Felicia assists organisations in understanding their reporting requirements concerning their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) responsibilities. She often goes beyond basic reporting requirements, to look at the business’s impact in terms of sustainability including the impact on people, the planet, and profit.

She helps conduct materiality assessments and supports the implementation of measurement frameworks such as the Global Risk Initiative (GRI), B Corp certification and other sustainability standards.

Policy development

Using her extensive experience in legislative drafting and developing national policies, Felicia is highly skilled in developing bespoke internal business policies for public, private, and third-sector organisations.

She helps to develop internal policies to support laws and regulations. Common yet complex policies she has developed include anti-bribery and corruption, modern slavery, and whistleblowing.
