Woolmark Performance Challenge 2017-2021

I returned to work with The Woolmark Company as a consulting Project Manager in June 2017. I took up the challenge to launch a new project for them: Woolmark Performance Challenge. The competition has had many successes since the inaugural 2018 edition: partnerships with industry leaders adidas, Helly Hansen, On, and SALEWA; participation by over 4000 students from over 150 participating institutions; events in London, Munich, Shanghai, and Denver - to name a few!

Redonda Restoration Programme

In January I headed out to Antigua. It was not for a sunny holiday - it was to volunteer for Fauna & Flora International, working on the Redonda Restoration Programme. I've recently published a blog on my experiences, via the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust website.

NOT JUST A LABEL Authentic Radicalism at Maison Assouline, London

NOT JUST A LABEL held their first 'Authentic Radicalism' event in 2016 - their first move into the fashion education sphere. I worked with them on planning the event agenda, procuring speakers, and producing an event that would engage and inspire the creative professionals, and shake up this industry as a whole.

The Woolmark Company: Loom to London

A project I am particularly proud of developing for The Woolmark Company, was 'Loom to London'. This project aimed to close the gaps between the UK's manufacturing supply chain and London's emerging design talents. I pitched the original concept, managed the first two years of implementation, and reported on our success.

Restore Rangers: an NHS funded project

I have been working on this NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)-funded project with The Magna Carta School (TMCS) throughout the 2016-17 academic year. Piloting a new approach to interventions for young teens at risk of mental health and well-being challenges, we planned activities and created a monitoring and evaluation framework to collect data and measure impacts. I have reported to the NHS on a monthly basis, and we submitted our final report in June. In this TES article, TMCS's Head of Mental Heath & Well-being Clare Erasmus reflects on the initiative and our learnings.

The Woolmark Company: Naturally Inspiring Seminars

When I began working with TWC, their educational talks were ad-hoc and usually given at individual universities. Consulting with external experts I designed a more strategic approach, and launched the Naturally Inspiring seminars in 2014. Since then these seminars have run annually in several international markets, with great praise from students and tutors.
