What have I done that qualifies me for this role:
Archery is a sport that I have been a part of for over 16 years. I have previous experience as a NGB Board Director, Communications Officer and have also been an Archery Club Treasurer and Captain. In addition to my current full time job as a Project Manager for global technology change initiatives in the Finance sector, sports organisations have been previous employers of mine in both a paid and voluntary capacity for over 10 years. Directors should be representatives of the membership and stewards of the sport, able to further improve the organisation’s processes and frameworks to best serve its current and future members. I believe that with my background of experience inside and outside of the sport I can assist Archery GB in the next steps of its journey.
What will I bring to this role:
Through leadership, accountability, & an ability to listen, I bring my professional management skills, a drive towards best practice and a varied sporting background. My academic years afforded me the opportunity to study ‘culture change at Board level’ in the airline industry and the ‘Governance, Structure & Strategy’ of another sports NGB, both of which are areas of importance for AGB today. In addition to this, I am currently learning in greater detail how sports organisations can perform at a level of sustainable high performance, both operationally and on the field of play, through a unique two year part-time MBA-level ‘Masters of Sport Directorship’ course which is due to complete this year.
