Posted 7th June 2019

Madeleine is GIF’s Head of Communications and leads on telling GIF’s story, the stories of the entrepreneurs and innovators we support, and the beneficiaries impacted by their innovations, through social media and digital communications.

Working with GIF’s analytics team, Madeleine’s role encompasses creating accessible material to explain how we measure impact and why; as well as managing and maintaining briefings about how GIF uses evidence, generates evidence, and remains a learning organisation.

In addition to creating collateral, such as annual impact reports, Madeleine drives GIF’s internal communications function.

Previously Madeleine managed communications for a project supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, that aimed to support low and middle-income countries to increase the value and impact of health spending; and led on communications for a Biomedical Research Centre that translated lab-based discoveries into new cutting edge treatments in clinical settings.

Madeleine has a BSc in Sociology, a Diploma in News Journalism, and is a contributing writer to a magazine aimed at expats living in the UK.
