David Macharia Karimi

Role: Consultancy Intern


I completed my Masters Degree in Risk Management from Glasgow Caledonian University and graduated with Distinction. Joining PlanB Consulting presented me with an opportunity to utilise my knowledge and skills gained from my postgraduate studies here in the UK; as well as bring along my experiences from working for a Kenyan subsidiary of one of the world's largest insurance brokerage companies. 

In these current times we are in, the effects of globalisation have made it extremely necessary for businesses to implement Business Continuity Management, if they are to remain competitive and resilient in the global market place. I find helping organisations to develop and implement such Business Continuity Management Systems highly rewarding, which is why I am glad to have been given this opportunity by PlanB Consulting. They engage with organisations from all-over the world and have a team of highly experienced and competent personnel, giving me the opportunity to learn and improve from the best.
