I’m passionate about local public services and being able to contribute to improving peoples lives.
Currently my working life is divided between a number of roles (paid and voluntary).
I am the Digital Communications Manager at Devon County Council, which is essentially about championing and developing the digital agenda within the council as well as being responsible for the councils Corporate Website and Intranet.
I am also Chair of LocalGov Digital – A practitioner network created and functioning in the spirit of local government’s sector-led improvement agenda.
Our belief is that an overarching and fundamental principle is that local government is and should be ‘open by default and digital by design’
I’m also a School Governor at my local Primary School where I hold the following positions:
- Vice Chair of Governing Body
- Chair of Resources Committee
- Lead Governor for ICT
I’m also a member of the Exeter Consortium Management Board - this is in my capacity as a School Governor.
The Exeter Schools Consortium is working hard to enable member schools to raise standards and secure better outcomes for children & young people through collaboration.
I’ve also recently won a Guardian Public Service Award for Leadership Excellence.
I also follow my Disclaimer
I’m inspired and motivated by the space that exists in the middle of technology, people and participation and how that space can radically transform people and places – improving people lives.
I’m passionate about the role of schools in the community, the future of teaching and education as well School Governance.
I’m committed to ethical and social business models and in particular their role in society.
I work to live and live to have fun – I’m also lucky that work on the whole is fun.
I am married to Sharon and we have two boys – we also have a black labrador.
I enjoy cycling, karate, walking, having fun and spending quality time with my family.
