Rosalind (Ros) Parke is a Cambridge graduate and a senior executive very well used to working at board level on strategic and business development projects. With significant experience in the delivery of large scale, business critical change programmes, she wanted to become a trustee and share those skills. Rosalind seemed like a good fit for Buckinghamshire Mind.
Empathy with the cause
The charity had found other trustees though Reach and they describe the process as, “very effective”, according to Buckinghamshire Mind's Kaya Mallinder. Importantly, Rosalind has considerable empathy for the aims of the charity - who are in turn delighted with the expertise she brings.
Ros adds, “Buckinghamshire Mind is experiencing a period of rapid business development and drawing up a 3 year strategic plan. I felt my corporate background and commercial focus could support the senior management team. I was keen to help in reviewing operational concerns and in delivering their plan.”
