Entrepreneurship & Leadership

Leadership is such a key aspect of being an entrepreneur; both go hand in hand because as an entrepreneur you have to lead yourself first in order to lead any stakeholders you may have.

My official foray into leadership began in my early teens at boarding school where I served as Junior House Captain in 2nd Form, a class subject prefect in 4th Form and as a Senior House Captain in 5th and 6th Forms overseeing the day-to-day running of one of nine dormitories housing about 160 girls aged 11-17.

Fast forward to adulthood and I’ve further honed my leadership skills over the years. Click on the tab for each role for a brief summary of my experience:

I served as the Chair of the British Dietetic Association’s Freelance Dietitians Specialist Group, an award-winning specialist network for around 400 nutrition entrepreneurs which grew under my leadership between March 2018 and June 2020.  I provided overall leadership, drive, motivation and coordination for the group’s Committee which successfully generated income which was used to deliver a number of key benefits to members and their businesses while representing member interests and liaising with the British Dietetic Association on their behalf. I also provided guidance to individual members on a variety of issues commonly experienced by nutrition entrepreneurs in the day-to-day running of their businesses.

I am a founding partner at the Leadership Matters Institute, a faith-based leadership development organisation focused primarily on developing leaders on the African Continent where I jointly lead on the Leadership Matters “30 Under 30” Mentoring Programme

I served as a School Governor of an independent school, working closely with the Head Teacher to support and shape the future direction and development of the school. I challenged some of the current provisions in place for pupils and worked to provide solutions to these and also used my professional expertise to support staff continuous professional development (CPD) and relevant policy. I liaised regularly with parents, representing their views to the school and prior to my election to this role, was an active member of a school committee where I served as co-treasurer. I also ran a parents’ workshop at the school’s request.

As a member of a Nursery Management Committee, I devised the idea for an on-site library to support busy parents and carers who used the nursery, single-handedly sourcing a variety of resources including books and DVDs on parenting, marriage/relationships and financial management at no cost to the nursery which parents and carers could borrow. I represented parent and carer views at regular meetings with the Nursery Manager and Parent Care Coordinator and contributed to the smooth running of the nursery by troubleshooting problems that arose on a day-to-day basis.

 

I have served in various leadership capacities in healthcare organisations such as the UK National Health Service (NHS). This includes being seconded to Public Health and leading on the management of specific health conditions, as well as mentoring and training other registered and pre-registration healthcare professionals, ensuring their competence to practice.
