Ajay Mehta is a capacity development specialist passionate about supporting the growth and sustainability of national and international civil society organisations to increase their social impact. With significant contributions in the voluntary, health and social care sectors he brings a breadth of experience to support the development of organisations in the areas of strategic planning and overhaul, income generation for sustainable growth, change management, community engagement, and governance. With a keen interest in community development and transformation he has worked with organisations and their leaders in the UK and internationally, using a range of design and delivery methods, including training, seminars and workshops, e-learning platforms, action learning sets, coaching and consultancy.
Over the years, Ajay has worked in partnership with INTRAC on several projects, including the Common Ground Initiative Peer Learning Programme, which was supported by the UK Department for International Development and Comic Relief, and designed to strengthen the capacities of African Diaspora organisations. The portfolio of his work has ranged from large institutions such as the United Nations for Inter-regional Crime Initiatives, The Union for International Cancer Control and Oxfam, to smaller community based organisations and informal groups, supporting them to review and re-engineer their strategic interventions and maximise impact.
He has held non-executive director positions with national and international charities and with the UK’s National Health Service, headed up a charitable foundation with investments to develop the health economy in sub-Saharan Africa. He holds a Masters in Business Administration from the Kingston School of Business.
Ajay’s approach and style of engagement is very much driven by corporate ethics and responsible business practice.
