Daria Ofman

Strategy consultant, social innovator and facilitator

It's not easy to keep up with Daria but it's worth it! Over the past year alone this political science and international law grad has been asked as consultant, facilitator, program designer and speaker for numerous projects and events from Scotland to Egypt, and Portugal to Qatar.

With her multicultural background and having lived in the Netherlands, India and Egypt, she easily connects with people everywhere. Her broad work experience and being based in Egypt for the past 6 years, has allowed her to build an extraordinary professional network of clients and partners along with a strong portfolio.


Daria has designed and facilitated multiple leadership programmes, ToT's, dialogue, strategy and monitoring sessions. She has been connected as Executive Manager to the Middle Middle East Council for Small Business & Entrepreneurship (MCSBE) in Cairo. In the past she has worked for IMI (instutute societal innovation in the Netherlands), founded the leadership foundation Sunryse and is fluent in English, German, Arabic and Dutch. As we said, it's not easy keeping up with Daria but she manages to do all this and still always has time for a cup of coffee.
