Creative Sustainableist & Systems Navigator
Khandiz Joni, MIEMA CEnv
I guide businesses and individuals to adopt ethical and responsible practices. My passion for weaving stories, sparking creativity in others, and actively participating in systems change is what moves me into action.
With a career spanning over two decades, I have made significant contributions to my industries. These include serving as an Assessor for CISL’s ‘Communicating for Influence and Impact’ short course and providing strategy support for the 2022 Commonwealth Games Opening & Closing Ceremonies.
I hold a Certificate in Sustainable Business Leadership from the Cambridge University Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) and an IEMA Diploma in Sustainable Business Practice. These qualifications enhance my status as a Chartered Environmentalist.
As co-founder of the award-winning creative agency Novel Beings, I’ve produced impactful campaigns for brands such as Fashion Revolution and Twelve Beauty. As an associate lecturer at the London College of Fashion and a sought-after panelist, I share my expertise in education and public discourse.
As a freelance ‘Green Beauty’ hair & makeup artist, my work has featured in global publications like Schön! Magazine, Hunger, and Harper’s Bazaar Japan, and brand campaigns Absolution Cosmetics. I have also contributed to telling important human stories in international films and TV shows, including Blood Diamond and Then Barbara Met Alan.
Finally, as an insatiable knowledge-seeker my current creative practice, The I AM IMPACT Project, combines body art and photography to explore humanity’s relationship with Earth’s tipping points.
My mission is to make a transformative and lasting impact on individuals and organisations by inspiring them to think, feel, and see differently about our world and our place in it. Here’s how.
