I started my career as a textile designer and accidently fell into fundraising through an introduction from a friend of a friend. I worked for several charities as an all rounder fundraiser, raising significant money from Trusts, individuals, companies and events. I joined the NSPCC, one of the UK’s largest childrens charities in 2006, and not long after that I had a career defining moment when I got the role as their first Innovation Manager.
I’d found a subject area I loved and an opportunity to work with different teams to help them turn their good ideas into action. Creativity and innovation are simply a strategy to solve problems that need solving. In my experience the biggest barrier that stops individuals, teams and whole organisations from innovating is lack of confidence.
In 2012 I left the NSPCC to set up Lucidity because I wanted to make a bigger difference by building confidence for creativity and innovation for many individuals and organizations.
When it comes to helping people gain their confidence to think differently there is value in not being part of ‘how we do things here’ and bringing a different perspective. Since 2012 I’ve worked with over 50 organisations helping leaders and teams to build their confidence, work together, think creatively and get powerful results.
