Anastasia M Bukashe is a consultant with 24 years experience in working with leadership at every level in order to navigate challenging and complex transitions.

Projects include supporting macro-political change through a UNDP funded initiative in Nepal to capacitate representatives in the Constituent Assembly for the constitutional reform process; designing and facilitating multiple global strategy sessions for international corporate and not for-profit organizations; and consulting to over 50 organizations to support them with a transformation agenda. Anastasia is able to work as a coach, consultant, facilitator, trainer, researcher and project manager with a special focus on building internal capacity for clients to sustain their transformation and change management agenda.
