Fiona joined the board because she passionately believes in local charities, support and volunteering doing great things for local people.
Whilst she doesn’t have time to commit as much to charities as she would like, this gives her the opportunity to help multiple organisations in the sector – albeit at a high level.
What continues to motivate her as a trustee is seeing the continued hard work of Phil and his team do to support organisations and individuals across the local area. She also thinks that our updates regarding training, befriending and general governance a real pleasure to receive. She told us they remind her of the goodness in people.
She has considerable corporate and digital experience and she feels her skills in defining vision, mission, strategy, objectives and prioritisation should help.
