Annabel Schiff

Co-Director of the Mastercard Foundation Learning Partnership

"I'm interested in continuously exploring the multi-faceted ways in which digitisation can have a meaningful impact on people's lives and livelihoods. The way in which our work blends a solid understanding of end-user experiences with business strategy and country/sector context, keeps at the forefront of development in a digital age. Being able to work with some of the best minds through this process is a privilege!"
