What have you gained from being a member of the ABCUL Board?
I have a wider understanding of the issues facing our sector and a much greater appreciation of what our small staff team do to support the sector.
What have you been able to contribute to the ABCUL Board?
Like any new role, it does take a while to get up to speed but I believe I have an enquiring mind and I am willing to challenge the status quo. I bring real life ‘shop-floor’ working experience to our discussions as well as senior leadership experience from my professional career.
What advice would you give to people considering standing for the ABCUL Board?
I’d suggest speaking to an existing director to understand the role in detail. Think not only about what the Board would gain from your knowledge, skills and experience but also what you could gain in your own personal development.
