Why do you value being a Chamber council member? 

I consider it an honour to be part of the Chamber Council at a time when SCCI look to become increasingly involved in helping to shape Regional policies toward growth and sustainability in partnership with SYMCA. I am passionate about providing opportunities for our Third Sector and look forward to championing their interests as part of the Council.

What’s the most important thing you bring to the Council, to benefit Chamber members? 

With 12 years’ experience working within the Sheffield City Council Employment and Skills Service managing various Government and European funded employment schemes, I bring an awareness of the opportunities that can exist through effective public & private sector partnership. I also look forward to championing Chamber members greater involvement with our thriving Third Sector.

Why is Sheffield the best UK city to live, work and play? 

Originally from Stockport I came to Sheffield in 1997 to study at SHU. Like so many students in our City I fell in love with Sheffield and decided to settle down here. It’s a wonderful City to raise Children with all the green spaces and friendly community feel. Having ‘bag-packed’ my way around the World as a young man I can safely say that Sheffield is my favourite location on the planet because it is my home (ok perhaps just after Fiji maybe!!).
