I work as a social enterprise consultant with a particular focus on providing business support and organisational development programmes for social enterprise intermediary organisations. With over 20 years experience in the social enterprise sector I moved into freelance work in 2017 following an extended career break. In 2007 I graduated with an Exec MBA from Cranfield University.
I’m currently doing work with Social Investment Scotland, Social Enterprise Scotland and the Good Ideas programme run by The Melting Pot. In addition I’m a non-exec board member and Audit Committee Chair at Dumfries and Galloway College and Chair at CRNS (Community Resources Network Scotland).
In my last full employed role I was Executive Director of Scottish charity, Firstport – providing business support and start up finance to social entrepreneurs before leaving in 2012 to cycle the globe with a complete stranger. It was the adventure of a lifetime and far from the busy world I used to be in. Despite not being a natural athlete my determination and stubbornness took me over the Thorong-la pass in Nepal at 5416m as well as cycling from Cairo to Capetown.
32,000km later I now plan to use my experience to continue doing what I love and working with a wide variety of people to help them make positive change – both personally and in business.
