I am currently taking a six month career break from Asda where I am head of corporate communications and social media. I have a keen interest in helping communities become stronger by facilitating useful connections between like-minded people.
I volunteer one day a week for Bradford and District Senior Power and am in the process of writing a book on how to get the most out of your midlife (crisis? what crisis?). To help me on my way I am attempting to complete 37 different resolutions in my 37th year, one of which is to make more use of my skills and interests in a non work environment – hence joining Elsie. Another resolution is to meet Roland Rat in person, so make of that what you will.
I love being creative, so have recently dusted off my potters wheel, which has not seen a pot thrown for nearly twenty years. And I am planning to write my first play.
I believe in doing more of what you’re good at, trying new things, and not being afraid to look silly in front of others.
Everyone should try and find a job they love as they’ll never work another day in their life (a good line given to me by my Dad, who in turn stole it off Confucius).
