Over the last 25 years I have worked with FTSE 100s (e.g. National Grid, Severn Trent, NatWest Bank, Abbey National) and FTSE 250s (Homeserve plc, Inchcape), SME's, Charities and Social Enterprises with down to earth, easy to understand Project and Programme Management support.
Whilst I loved working with corporates, in 2015 I made the decision to step back from that for two years and spent time designing and launching a Social Enterprise - Team SpringBoard CIC - supporting disadvantaged young people to make a move into employment, training or education. Team Springboard will be in 5 years old in 2020 and I still act as Founding Director setting the strategic direction but the day to day operations are managed by a wonderful team of individuals.
So now I have a blend of Corporate and Social Enterprise. clients - which is pretty great!
In 2009 I joined the Board at Coventry Citizen's Advice as an independent trustee and I was Vice-Chair in 2013 until I moved on to start Team Springboard in 2015. Since 2018 I have sat on the Board at CROW Recycling, an amazing charity supporting adults with learning challenged in Coventry.
Team Springboard has won a number of Awards from UnLtd (Do It (2014) and Grow It (2016) and Thrive (2018) the School of Social Entrepreneurs (2015).
I am very proud to have been listed as one of the leading Women in Social Enterprise on the WISE100 list from NatWest and Pioneers Post in 2018 and 2019.
