Lilian Spijkerman

Chief Development Officer

Born and raised in the Netherlands and trained as an Environmental Engineer and Physical Geographer, Lilian spent much of her initial career in remote areas in the Amazon, the Andes and the Philippines. Her 20-year journey working in nature conservation and sustainable development has provided extensive experience in connecting funding at scale to programmes that deliver clear impact. She really is as busy as she sounds so when she picks up a camera to show some behind-the-scenes footage on her adventure-filled work trips, make sure to listen up as you’ll no doubt learn a great deal!
