So what do you actually do?
I have an all round view of what’s going on across the project and co-ordinate The Green Blue Team to keep things running smoothly - keeping an eye on progress and communicating with everyone who needs to stay in the know. It’s a great staff team - everyone knows what they have to do and we simply crack on with it - from organising a conference, exhibiting at a boat show, commissioning a new poster, launching a new website or visiting a sailing club or marina with ideas on how to save energy or recycle more. I also manage our relationships with funders, making sure we deliver our commitments to them and making the most of the resources we have to achieve as much as we can.
What did you do before you joined The Green Blue?
I spent 15 fantastic years in high performance sport, with the British Paralympic Association and UK Sport – everything from hands-on team logistics to sponsorship and organisational development.
What is the best thing about working for The Green Blue?
The can-do culture of The Green Blue team and the inspirational people who share our energy for sustainable boating.
What/where do you sail?
Hill Head and Calshot – happy days are those spent in a dinghy.
