“It’s an amazing organisation to be working with, hitting well above its weight and making a real difference in the lives of teenagers and young adults.”
A businesswoman with over 30 years experience, mainly in diamonds. After being CEO of De Beers Diamond Trading Company, I moved into a plural career, involving being Non-Executive Director on FTSE company, a Mentor to C Suite Executives (with Merryck & Co.) and Advisor for the diamond industry across the supply chain, ranging from producing countries’ governments to retail.
Being a teenager presents its own challenges and cancer makes it very tough. The ability to make patients feel at ease and recover in a friendlier environment, with other youngsters around, I believe is very important and I would like to help with achieving that for every young adult with cancer in the UK.
The charity members I’ve met so far are so passionate about what we do and we’re blessed with a great management team and a fantastic board of trustees. This gives us such a head start in making a difference to these young people’s lives.
