About me

 

I pride myself on having an innovative, creative and passionate approach in life and I’m honoured to be an award winning social-entrepreneur for the creation of The Running Charity (TRC) – a charity helping young men and women escape homelessness through the benefits of running and fitness. My responsibilities have covered each end of the spectrum over the last three years: - Planning and executing a weekly delivery service - Managing volunteers and partnerships - Securing sponsorship and support networks - Developing fundraising initiatives - Executing PR and marketing strategies - Implemented a Digital strategy - Registered and established a charitable organisation - Good governance and good practice - Event planning and management - Public speaking and advocacy work My time and efforts with TRC will conitnue on a voluntary basis. I am looking for a new role in an already developed organisation to focus and adapt my skills to. I'm a visionary, problem solver and out-the-box communicator. I strive to better connect people to sport and to work with industry leaders to improve engagement. I believe my success with TRC is a testament to my dedication and resourcefulness that I can bring to any organisation. I am also consulting others in the process of setting up a charity.
