Pallu Modi - Talk Surrey Trustee

I’m Pallu. I was born in India but have lived in the UK since I was a year old. I live in Normandy, Surrey with my husband (our 18 year old daughter is at University). I studied Economics at London University and then Development Studies at the University of Bath. For the last 30 years, I have worked within international development in more than 40 countries and for the UK government, academics, INGOs, social enterprises and management consulting firms, implementing public sector reform projects in a number of diverse sectors.

My hobbies include travelling, walking, playing tennis, reading, cooking and painting. I am learning Spanish and the guitar. Having spent my career working overseas, I would now like to support people closer to home as well. Being the daughter of two doctors, I have always wanted to help within the medical profession and I am delighted to be able to work with TALK Surrey, hopefully on its strategy, raising its profile and telling everyone about its great work.
