I’m a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. I have worked as an HR Director since 2000 and have worked for Royal Ordnance, FedEx UK and latterly Steelite International & Royal Crown Derby. My expertise is in culture change and promoting employee engagement as key to business growth. I am a Trustee of the Burslem Regeneration Trust, am active with the CBI on People issues, am heavily involved in Community Spirit initiatives and work with the Ceramic Industry to promote best practice.
Skills shortages are very high on the agenda at Steelite International and I believe that working with schools in the local area is essential if we are to attract and retain young people within our industry.
