A 25 year career in the public, third and funding sectors with organisations including the National Lottery Charities Board, local infrastructure charities, regional government agencies and now the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations. Roles have spanned policy development, research and strategic and operational implementation. Always championing social inclusion and putting people at the heart of activities which impact on their lives.

Within the technology sphere my focus has been on tech as a force for good, that it is relevant to people’s home and work lives and that its developed with people and not for them. Twinned with this I am passionate about championing diversity and ensuring that no-one is left behind and that everyone has the confidence, motivation and skills to use a wide range of tech effectively.
