I work to provide strategic direction to Flying Futures. I place an emphasis on effective systems to ensure we hit and exceed our objectives. With my background in business development and communications, I’m keen to support the team to build the profile of the company to support sustainable long term growth. Critically for me, Flying Futures is doing excellent things across the North and we should be telling that story. I am a Director with Quatro, a national PR and public affairs company. I am responsible for our operations in the north of the country based in our offices in Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester. I have over 16 years experience in strategic communications and public affairs having worked for the civil service in London and overseas across a range of economic, trade and investment functions. I’m excited to be joining the Board of Flying Futures. I was struck by the commitment of the team to deliver good social outcomes for our communities, and the desire to learn, to listen, to grow. It is a compelling and committed team of people.
