I was designated as an NLG in 2014 by the NCTL. In 2015 I became the Advocate for National Leaders of Governance for the East of England. In 2017 the region I am responsible for was altered to match the RSC region, including NE London. I have been a governor since 2011 and a chair of governors since 2012. I have designed, developed and lead governor training for many years and have facilitated the Governance Leadership programme in Essex. I am a regular speaker at governor conferences and events. Currently I am chair of a primary school and a junior school in Essex.
