Chief Executive, Manchester Law Society
My responsibilities at Manchester Law Society include providing an extensive range of services for members and non-members, management of the financial business, to investigate and create marketing opportunities, to support the Officers, Council and Committees, to act as a focal point for the Society and to manage and oversee staff and operations.
I truly believe that I am very lucky to have a job which I love, a wonderful family and group of friends and want to give something back and so I do have a couple of voluntary board memberships. I am a Board Member of Six Degrees Social Enterprise CIC. The Salford Primary Care Mental Health Service is improving access to Psychological Therapies Service (IAPT) and have been approved to develop an independent social enterprise; Six Degrees Social Enterprise CIC.
The IAPT programme plays a critical role in relieving stress and transforming the lives of people with depression and anxiety disorders. The central mission of the service is to build resilient
I am also a member of pro manchester's Business of Law Panel. The Panel's remit is to connect key business sectors in Greater Manchester.
The role of pro manchester's sector groups is to identify the challenges and opportunities in key business sectors, develop links and open up new business opportunities. Each sector group has its own dedicated committee, bringing together the experts in that particular field. Together, the sector groups map their sector’s role in Manchester, the region and the UK. They also work to take on sector issues and look at ways the experts within our membership can respond to these.
My hobbies are my lovely Spanish husband, Peter, my hormonal, hairy and grunting 19 year old son, Jack , walking the dog, gardening but only in the summer, shopping (NOT window), cooking for friends, reading when I get a minute, riding my motorbike (but am a fair-weather rider), watercolour painting (badly) and very sadly, reality TV shows..
