As a Programme Manager, I manage a number of externally funded delivery projects within the Growth & Innovation department. Currently my time is split between managing Spark, the Design Council’s product accelerator programme, and a number of Design Support programmes which provide bespoke design thinking training to public, private, and third-sector organisations.

I’ve been involved in programme management for over a 13 years; working in IT, finance, and the not-for-profit sector. Prior to joining the Design Council, I managed delivery of a range of specialist advice services at Citizens Advice’s head office. This experience has given me a keen sense of what makes for a successful delivery project and I enjoy working together with experts in different fields in order to achieve meaningful and lasting outcomes.
