Makena Guantai Day

Executive Assistant

Makena is Executive Assistant to Creative PEC’s Director Hasan Bakhshi. My background is in international development and I have worked in that sector for over ten years. I am passionate about human rights and gravitate towards sectors that work to improve the lives of people in all walks of life.

On the home front, I like to think of myself as a relaxed mum though my kids may vehemently disagree! I am originally from Kenya so if you ever want to go and visit the eighth wonder of the world, (Maasai Mara), please get in touch for tips!
