Bio

I'm a coach who helps EAs make career changes and/or level up in their current roles to have greater impact. I have funding available via the EA Infrastructure Fund to provide subsidized or pro-bono sessions to EAs. 

I'm also sometimes available as a speaker or workshop facilitator, and for ad hoc consulting projects

I was previously a manager at the Centre for Effective Altruism and prior to that built communities for brands like Google, Pinterest and Nike. 

How others can help me

I'm particularly excited to work as a coach for promising female EAs to help increase their individual impact and improve the diversity of the EA community. If you know someone who might benefit from my coaching, please send them my details!

Thanks for writing, I really enjoyed reading this and it makes me feel happy that you found the EA Student Summit so valuable! :) 

Thanks for sharing this write-up, I really enjoyed reading it! It sounds like you've made really solid progress for a new group, and seem focused on the right priorities, especially helping your members to learn more and become more engaged. You mentioned that there's a chance that you might decrease the amount of time you spend on community building in the future; I'm curious whether you have identified any successors who might take on some of your work? I've noticed that succession planning is plausibly one of the most important things group organisers can do, as it ensures the continuation of their group going forward.

Manuel, I agree that a European-based EAGx should service the needs of unsuccessful applicants for EAG London, seeing as a number of attendees travel from elsewhere in Europe for the conference anyway.

Regarding your question about applications, EAGx conferences don't have an application process (to ensure that they are accessible to all). However, the last European EAGx conference sold out ahead of time, suggesting that we may want to consider at increasing capacity in 2020 or increasing the number of EAGx events in the region in the future.


Yes, we do want to consider this for the future. For new EAGx locations in 2020, we have planned to prioritise locations that don't currently have access to either EAG or EAGx at all. That said, we'll certainly consider applications from excellent organising teams in any location!

I do think it would be less likely that we'd fund an EAGx in the Bay or London for 2020, compared to other locations right now, but applying now or getting in touch now may still be helpful as we consider future locations.
