“I vividly remember reading about the launch of the then Wood Family Trust and saying to my mum, ‘that would be the dream job’. Little did I know that a few short years later I would join the team as UK Manager and spend the following 10 years leading an inspirational team of people to deliver transformational change.
“Not only has The Wood Foundation significantly evolved in the past decade, but I as a professional have too.
“What lies central to my management philosophy, and the values of the organisation, is an absolute commitment to people and relationships. These are measured in depth rather than breadth. Empowered voice throughout our team, trusted and collaborative partnerships with our stakeholders, and realising that confident people with the skills and opportunities to lead change will lead change.
“Creative solutions do not need to be bold and brash, nor epiphanous. We are delivering innovative ideas and actions every day, never more so than in 2020.
“To deliver the systemic and sustainable impacts that we aspire to, ideas cannot be fully formed by an individual, nor even an individual organisation. Collective insight, action, and ownership is key to success.
