I come from a commercial background having spent my working life in the private sector latterly in the training world in which I built my own company specialising in management development. I sold that business in 2017 becoming semi-retired whilst remaining a consultant to the new owners. My business interests always had a social responsibility element – my company funded the building of a school in West Africa and paid the wages of teaching staff, supported Bradford Foyer (now Centrepoint Bradford Foyer) and Horticap in Harrogate. I became trustee of a small Bradford charity in 2017 and when that closed was pleased to be asked to join the board of trustees for the Bridge Project.
