Work history

About me

I am a proven strategic and innovative leader, with experience of charity trusteeship, the charity sector, social innovation and the private sector:

  • Currently a Campaign Director at a large, national, membership charity, aiming to accelerate business action for people and planet. Accountable for setting and delivering campaigning strategy, creating and measuring impact, raising profile through media, events and government, and winning approximately £300,000 of income annually. I also lead and line manage teams.
  • Previously Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees for a start-up social mobility charity, including establishing relevant governance, leading the strategy sub-group, and mentoring other Trustees.
  • Global Management Consultant experience, specialising in strategy and technology-enabled change.
  • Co-founder of environmental social enterprise, aiming to reconnect people with nature and protect the planet.

What am I looking for

  • Passionate about the power of communities, businesses and people to make a difference, on a variety of issues from social mobility and inclusion to the destruction of nature.
  • Looking to put my leadership and strategy skills to use through Trusteeship and leadership support roles.
  • Also looking for impactful, "on the ground" volunteering where I can make a difference - not necessarily skilled.
