I have been Governor since 2016 and as of September 2018 I am Chair of the Teaching and Learning Committee and the lead governor for Special Needs Education and Disability.
I am Director of Educational Enterprise at the University of Birmingham responsible for leading the development of a growing portfolio of digital learning initiatives. I also oversee the University’s Market Insight and Digital Channel Management teams – informing strategic decisions on what we do and advising on the best use of digital communication technologies.
Prior to joining the University I was Head of Knowledge and Learning at BBC Online where I led the team responsible for developing all factual websites including BBC Food and BBC Bitesize. Highlights of my career include playing a key role in the roll out of BBC News Online across the UK and the launch of BBC iPlayer.
I am an Old Veseyan (1991-1996) and am passionate about music. I am a trustee of Town Hall & Symphony Hall in Birmingham, founded Made in Sutton and run the New Streetly Youth Orchestra
