Our CEO who is formerly the Executive Director for Engage for Success (the UK’s movement for employee engagement) and the Operations Director for The Employee Ownership Association, Cathy has wide ranging experience across the public, private and third sectors in raising awareness and providing practical guidance to organisations looking to improve workplace experience and performance through many different business models.

Cathy engages and energises audiences around business change, leadership and the social economy. She passionately believes that helping people find a better way to work can make a big difference to people’s lives, their organisations and ultimately to the country.

Cathy says “the opportunity to join iSE, at such an important time for the city of Birmingham and its people, is one I am thrilled to be taking on. There are challenges ahead, but some great opportunities too and I look forward to working with our West Midlands social entrepreneurs to strengthen the local social economy.”
