Chief Executive, Sound Seekers

Sound Seekers is a unique UK registered charity dedicated to helping people with hearing loss, especially children, in the poorest communities of the developing world. Sound Seekers develops and support projects in a range of African countries. Sound Seekers works to help children stay in school and adults to find and keep jobs.

I worked with my team to transform a dormant organisation into a thriving, motivated, and respected charity. This required a fundamental strategic review and complete governance overhaul, managing the Board, fundraising, programme delivery, developing partnerships, regulatory compliance, and staff and financial management. I tripled income, implemented financial controls, significantly raised our public profile through a partnership with SpecSavers, and created a cohesive programme to deliver support to many thousands of beneficiaries, through investing in project countries’ health infrastructure and people.
