Most of my work in sustainable development over the past twenty years or so has been in UK local government. For seven years I worked for Warwickshire County Council as Head of Environment and Resources. However after over 25 years in local government as an elected member or officer, I left Warwickshire CC and local government, at the end of 2011.
I am now an Associate of Birmingham University’s Institute of Local Government Studies (INLOGOV) which I joined in October 2012. I am an occasional blogger for them.
My main areas of work are now in the charity management field. Most important of these are my role as Chair of the William Morris Society based in Hammersmith, London and as Vice-Chair of Garden Organic, based at Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Coventry. I am a member of the Association of Chairs which supports charity and non-profit Chairs.
