Work history

About me

I am driven by bringing people together to bring about social change, having delivered events and engagement strategies for charities, foundations and non-profits in the UK and internationally for 15 years. Alongside delivering events portfolios for Ark and BAFTA as part of their philanthropy/development teams, clients have included English National Ballet, Garfield Weston Foundation, Global Schools Forum, Grassroot Soccer UK, Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, The Royal Foundation and Unicef UK.

I am currently a Director at the Resource Alliance, a charity whose purpose is to support other charities with fundraising and resource mobilisation, where my role looks after strategy, operations, income generation and the development of an online membership community and digital platform. 

I founded if25 Forum for philanthropists and leaders of international grant-making organisations in 2019, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, with the aim of bringing them together to affect lasting social change and identify opportunities for collaboration and better giving. 

A passionate social entrepreneur, I am Co-Founder of FemMentored, a mentoring community for women in the social impact space and in 2011 I also founded and am former Chair of the Charity Sector Events Forum, a free network now with over 500 members in the UK.

What am I looking for

  • Trustee/Board/Non-Exec opportunities with charities or foundations
  • Organisations looking for expertise in strategy, building community, online or in-person events, webinars and conferences, fundraising and partnerships, and marketing 
  • Organisations seeking experience of working closely with boards and managing committees, growing income/developing income strategies, leading and building digital platforms
  • Organisations with a focus on women and girls, education, technology for good, food poverty, international development, human rights and environmental issues
