About me

I have over 20 years of experience in Product Management & Development, Operational Management, Project Delivery, Account Management and Sales & Marketing, I take an entrepreneurial, consultative and collaborative approach in building successful strategies and relationships.

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 achieve this as well as help others.

1. I am on a development path learning more about being a board director and the responsibilities that sit with those roles as I am aiming to add a non-executive director position to my current responsibilities soon. 

2. Alongside this, whilst I have added significant value to those organisations I have worked for; I feel I could also add value to my wider community by working with some of the charities delivering for their various causes. 

What am I looking for

I want to help charities that help improve the lives of people in need. That can be a very broad range but from my perspective, if I can do something to make someone's life a little better, or help an organisation achieve the same, that's a great thing. 

My skills gained from many years in large and small organisations could help in a variety of ways. Developing and delivering strategies for business improvement and change, driving efficiencies in operations, or generating new ways of working with partners to grow revenue are some of the ways I believe I can help.
