Rethinking an inclusive approach

Revitalise LogoOn the 24 March I was delighted to be able to facilitate a Board Strategy session for Revitalise. Revitalise is an established national charity that provides short breaks and holidays for disabled people and carers.

The board session was lively and provided a useful opportunity for board members to discuss and think through what makes for an inclusive Revitalise offering; what does inclusion really mean in the context of their vision, mission and values?

For me, it was rewarding seeing board members enthusiastically sharing ideas about how they could deliver more inclusive services in order to enhance the great work Revitalise does. I’m looking forward to hearing how their thinking develops in future.


Finalist at the IoD London and South East Director of the Year Awards

LON-SE-FINALIST-2013-black-300x108This week I was thrilled to attend the IoD London and South East Director of the Year Awards where I was shortlisted as one of three finalists in two categories, the ‘turnover over £60 million’ and ‘public and third sector’ categories. Congratulations go to Clive Lucking and Joy Saunders who pipped me to the post respectively – both worthy winners.

The gala dinner and awards evening was held in the magnificant Nash and Waterloo rooms at the Institute headquarters on Pall Mall. It was a really enjoyable evening and wonderful to be able to catch up with fellow members and old friends.
