With over 25 years’ experience, Ms Onslow-Cole is regarded as the UK’s “Experts Expert” and has been the recipient of several nominations and awards, including most recently Woman of the year: Business Growth at the Citywealth Power Women Awards 2016.

Most recently she was appointed as a key expert in PwC’s Brexit Taskforce and has been liaising with Government and business on immigration outcomes post the referendum.

Ms Onslow-Cole regularly speaks at conferences across the globe regarding the impact of the refugee crisis and geopolitical instability on global mobility, including most recently speaking with Kofi Annan in Monaco. She liaises with Governments overseas and has recent meetings with Governments in Australia, Europe and the Caribbean.
