Kristen Sukalac is a curious system-thinker with a passion for science, technology and innovation. Always asking herself why certain solutions work and some ideas are more successful than others, she is currently working on an Executive Doctorate of Business Administration (Université Dauphine, Paris) exploring the legitimation of new technologies and emerging industries in the context of European policy-making. Kristen has been a Consulting Partner at Prospero and Partners since 2008, where she provides strategy support to clients, primarily working int he fields of food and agriculture. Before joining Prospero, she worked as a communicator at global trade associations representing the fertilizer and crop protection sectors. She began her career as a researcher at a European affairs think tank after completing her Master's Degree in the Politics of European Integration at the College of Europe. Her entire education and professional experience have been in multicultural contexts. Rather than being a specialist in one or two fields, Kristen is an expert in the space in-between, looking for the interconnections between science & technology, human dynamics, culture and institutions.
She was a member of the International Executive Board of the International Association of Business Communicators 2010-2013 and is one of just 1200 people to obtain IABC's Accredited Business Communicator credential.
