My official job title is Head of Dreams and I head up the team who deliver the children’s dreams. Ultimately I am responsible for the delivery of each dream, but with such experienced staff my main function seems to be signing cheques!
My motivation is straightforward, and that is making a difference somehow at whatever level for a child and their family. I know how fortunate I am and it is my way of balancing up the scales if I can put it like that. The things I most like about working at Dreams Come True is the variety of people that you come into contact with, the chance to realise a child's dream and of course the people that I work with!
Even on my own estimation I am quite boring. I like my music, film and books. One would like to say abseiling with my friend Bear Grylls , but it is what it is. My latest obsession is with American West Coast rock bands of the mid 1970s – hard to say why.
