I have one or two days per month that I'm available during office hours, otherwise I'm happy to schedule time outside those hours.
I have over 20 years of experience in product management, digital strategy and delivery, Agile methodologies, operational management, project delivery and account management.
I am passionate about driving diversity, inclusion, and belonging (DI&B) - I'm an active member of several working groups within my employer, Direct Line Group, including our BAME and gender strands.
There are two elements I am now working on as part of my own personal development and I hope finding the right volunteering role can help me continue to work toward this as well as help others.
1. I am on a development path learning more about the role of a board director and the responsibilities it carries.
2. Alongside this, whilst I have added significant value to those organisations I have worked for; I feel I am also able to add value to my wider community by working with some of the charities delivering for their various causes.
In terms of my location, whilst I live close to Maidstone, coming in to London or elsewhere for meetings is not an issue for me.
I'm keen to help charities working to improve the lives and opportunities of people in need. As said above, I'm passionate about DI&B, so if I can help in this aspect, maybe by using the 'privilege' I was born with, or skills I've developed and my personal experiences, then I'm very happy to.
My skills gained in large and small organisations could help in a variety of ways. Examples include instilling a customer-first, digital mindset throughout an organisation and using it to grow this essential channel, developing and delivering strategies for business growth and improved effectiveness.
