I have 30 Years of experience of driving innovation by using tried and tested methodology from one field in new contexts. I am passionate about delivering cultural and sport, projects which make life better. I am particularly interested in the development of innovative funding models and in maximizing the use of sport, arts, and culture to build community capacity and engage individuals at risk of exclusion.
