I have enjoyed a varied career spanning the public and private sector and am very excited and honoured to have joined the Board of Transform Learning Trust.

I have spent most of my working life shaping and delivering complex programmes of work, usually with a big commercial focus. Working across a wide range of different organisations both in Government and as a Management Consultant, has meant that I have been very lucky to work on programmes that have a positive impact on people, whether that is in central government; international development; local government; education; housing; health; or transport to name a few. I can talk for hours about this stuff!

 

This range of work has given me a lot of really useful experience that I can now bring to Transform.

In normal times I enjoy spending my time at the cinema and theatre, attempting to play golf, and trying to grow vegetables in the garden. I am a huge petrol head with cars and motorbikes and when I’m not riding or driving, I can often be found with my head in a magazine instead.
