I joined Chartwell in 2008 from 10 years working in the not-for-profit sector. This culminated in a role designing and developing employment and training projects for homeless people in Brighton & Hove.

My transition to the business world has cemented my belief that people, regardless of their circumstances, are driven to challenge their status quo, engage in new experiences, and support one another to learn new skills.

I enjoy working with facilitators and clients to identify opportunities to go the extra mile and add value to our services. More recently I have spent time applying best practice in terms of learning theory and technology to the development of our Blended Learning programme.

I have really loved designing and implementing a new accreditation process for our facilitator community. My theoretical knowledge of the programme is second-to-none, so it’s now time to see if I can put that into practice!

I’m particularly excited about the potential that the programme has beyond the corporate environment and am looking forward to developing that area of the business.
