My experience and what I bring

Work with company Managing Directors and regional Vice-Presidents to improve interaction with the NHS and promote fiscal policies and regulatory regimes to attract global company investment.
  • Helping business be a force for good: Launched an initiative with the company procurement to employ social enterprises/SMEs in under-served communities. In 2014, spend on such organisations increased from £0 to £250k with the aspiration of increasing this to £14-25m over 3-5 years, equating to 150-200 hard to reach jobs.
