founder, ceo & senior consultant
Where I am right now is the synthesis of all the hard, messy and complicated work of finding my voice and using my expertise to make a difference.
Hi! My name is Maiden Manzanal-Frank. I am the Founder, CEO and Senior Consultant of GlobalStakes.
In 2013, I founded GlobalStakes Consulting to use the best global development practice for local impact. As a consultant, I am in a unique position to inspire, influence, build capacities of organizations to be better practitioners in the social change sector. With more than 15 years of deep experience, straddling between the East and the West, between developing and developed contexts, I am privileged to be sitting at this juncture.
In 2015 I received the Bhichai and Khunying Charoye Rattakul Scholar for Peace and Conflict Resolution Award for the outstanding work in community development by fostering social cohesion in a fragile community. This is a validation and a call to action!
Moving ahead I believe that mission can meet sustainability, impact and effectiveness, not as impossible ends, but a sustaining and empowering place to be. When this happens, they can do more for the people they ultimately serve. I wake up everyday with that sense of purpose and fulfillment.
