I make things happen. I am an effective entrepreneur with an excellent track record in the charity, arts and heritage sectors. I have been consistently successful in generating income from commercial activity without diluting the core mission and values. I think strategically, innovatively and imaginatively and I build surprising collaborations which attract profile, audiences and money. I lead from the front with energy but manage change empathetically. I am a skilled manager of people building capability and ambition in teams as well as being a passionate advocate of cultivating tomorrow’s audience and engaging the unengaged.
Until recently I was CEO of an inclusive theatre company, a director of a Welsh venue, an international festival and of a Cultural Olympiad project. I am now a freelance artist, consultant, facilitator and an Associate of the Arts Council of Wales.
