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 having applied for a voluntary sector scholarship.
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 at Dumfries and Galloway College and a board member 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.
