Nooriya is a highly accomplished facilitator, trainer and executive coach who brings her extensive experience working with diverse leaders across the globe to the Symmetra team.

Born in Zimbabwe, graduating from universities in the UK and Europe, Nooriya assumed many challenging roles in the United Nations over a twenty year period culminating in the role of Chief of Learning and Development. This has built a keen appreciation for the challenges of working with diverse teams and how to design approaches to building the skills of leaders to optimise diverse talent.
