Kelly Bewers

Managing Director

Kelly is our Managing Director.

She joined Year Here from Accenture Development Partnerships, where she led strategy, innovation and consulting work with international NGOs including Amnesty International.

Kelly loves connecting diverse ideas, people and organisations to collaborate and solve societal issues. She is passionate about the intersection between technology, business, innovation and society and believes in creating a shared future that benefits everyone. She is particularly interested in exploring how we can use emerging technology to create empathy in an increasingly divided world, the emergence of urban commons to promote more resilient communities and using the arts as a tool for inclusion.

An avid traveller, Kelly has lived in France, Hong Kong and Venezuela. She reads voraciously, listens thoughtfully, cooks without recipes, drinks coffee too often and at weekends can be found with friends in East London’s green spaces.
