Renée Engelsman
 

Renée is dedicated to confronting the bigger stories behind social problems. An entrepreneur at heart, she dares to think big and she is not afraid to shake up the status quo. With her holistic, lateral thinking combined with a deep sense of cross-cultural understanding, she is a skilled facilitator who finds synergies within the most diverse of groups. She knows how to get the best out of everybody, and she uses her creativity to drive innovative processes and solutions.

At NewForesight, Renée works on one of our most forward looking projects in the cocoa industry. Her solid, complex analyses to find the criteria that impacts investments on farmers in the cocoa industry is crucial to achieving the goal of lifting thousands of farmers out of poverty. She also plays a vital role in several Service Delivery Model cases where she applies her innovative thinking to help revolutionize the way services are delivered to smallholder farmers across different sectors.

Prior to NewForesight, Renée worked for three years as a Strategy and Transformation Consultant at Capgemini where she worked on projects using technology to facilitate systemic solutions for sustainability.
