About me

I am Programme Director of the Charity Leaders’ Exchange.

I am also Assistant Editor and Social Media Manager for Good News Shared.

I am the Founder of Young Charity Trustees, a charitable organisation which both champions Board Diversity and seeks to promote networking between young people already on Boards.

I’m also a Fellow of the RSA.

I was previously the Chief Executive of the Small Charities Coalition, a charity which supports other small UK charities through skills-matching, information-sharing, representation and more. It currently has more than 65oo members.

I’m passionate about Charity Sector Careers and own a LinkedIn group on the topic.

I was listed as one of the top 30 Charity CEOs on Social Media
