Joining the Board as a Trustee gives me a valuable opportunity to leverage my skills & experience, especially in digital led transformation, to serve the sector at a time of pandemic when there is a pressing need for local communities to show great agility in adapting to fast changing needs and rethinking traditional delivery models using innovative methods.”
