I'm an award winning Social Entrepreneur and am proud to have been honoured:
- by the Prime Minister with a Big Society Award
- by Enterprise UK with an Outstanding Impact Award
- locally with a Best Social Enteprise Partnership Award
By 'trade' I'm a change specialist with a background in global management consultancy and executive roles such as Head of Organisational Change for the Co-op Group.
In 2009 I started a portfolio of social enterprises with my husband. We have 2 at the moment - WhyNotChange, a consultancy and A Man For All Seasons, landscape gardening - we hope to add more shortly.
The work I get involved in is extremely varied - cultural and behaviour change; happy workplaces; regenerating communities; tendering for public sector work; innovative positive activities for young people; corporate social responsibility; enterprise; business support; change management; training; facilitation; events; running the NW Women's Enterprise network - to name but a few.
If it involves people then usually you can count me in!
I get irrepressably excited by new and quirky ideas or thinking, and am incurably curious. I am regularly 'accused' of 'infecting people with enthusiasm' - a compliment I will endeavour to live up to on here!
