    CEO, Impact Hub Bradford

    A visionary social innovator and compassionate leader in the third sector noted for work across the voluntary, social enterprise, non-profit, diversity & inclusion and public sector ecosystems.

    My current focus will be scaling up Impact Hub Bradford to drive the development of new programmes of support, convening new events as well as growing our membership and contributing our perspectives to the global Impact hub network. At the LEP I'm intending to push for inclusive growth across the region through the lens of social innovation. Finally, my role at the 2025 City of Culture will be to ensure Bradford is best positioned to become the host city and in a manner that includes all the city's communities.


Nothernlands 4 is a collaboration between Open Innovations and The Kingdom of the Netherlands, the start of activity to create, support, and amplify the cultural links between The Netherlands and the North of England. It is with their generous and vigourous support, and the support of other energetic organisations, that Northernlands can be delivered.
