Paulette Elliot Avatar

Paulette is the founder and Managing Director of Huduma, and the brains behind Huduma’s core values

"Throughout my career, I have always been determined to introduce change for the better.

When I started Huduma as a contractor in 2010, I not only wanted to create a company that pioneered emerging technologies, but also to be inclusive, with diversity, and equal opportunities for its employees, and integrity, honesty and collaboration in its commercial relationships.

I have 28+ years of experience in delivering and managing telecoms and IT services, and throughout this time have learned the importance of honesty and transparency in business, and the value of a collaborative approach in delivering solutions to clients. Whilst many business consultants do not assist with the hands-on implementation of a practical solution, I am passionate about Huduma’s proactive approach, which I believe gives our clients a competitive edge in their business sector.

Within Huduma, I work with C-level decision makers, managers, individuals and companies across various industries, and outside of Huduma, I help to support young entrepreneurs as a business mentor, and speak at a variety of events throughout the business calendar"
