I am an experienced, driven and compassionate leader that always puts people first. I am motivated to be the best at whatever I commit to, conduct myself with the utmost of integrity, but always allowing my personality to come through. I am flexible, naturally inquisitive, challenge when necessary and provide support when needed, but all with a desire to achieve the best outcome in any given situation.
Away from my profession as the Managing Director of an internationally recognised brand, I am committed to being an Independent Visitor, an IV is an adult volunteer who befriends and develops a long-term friendship with a young person in care, this can involve helping young people develop new interests, skills and hobbies or going on outings such as to the cinema, bowling or just a walk in the park. Called ‘Independent Visitors’ because we are a truly ‘independent’ person outside the care system giving them continuity, which unfortunately is something that is a real rarity for too many young people.
I have a great sense of humour, magnanimous to a fault, with family, friends and colleagues. I’m a sensitive person, thoughtful and receptive to people’s feelings. Often described as approachable, personable and cultured, I’m considered an inspirational leader and culture architect.
