1. What do you most like about being on the Board? 

 I like working with peers, supporting a culture of collaboration and sharing learning, as well as contributing to raising standards in fundraising.


2. What do you bring to the Board?

Hopefully insights from working in charities for 30 years, and particularly championing inspiration and engagement. Our people need it, as well as our supporters.

3.  What are you looking forward to about this year’s Fundraising Convention?

An injection of inspiration and fresh ideas, as well as listening and learning. Times of change are challenging, but dynamic.
