Putting leadership skills to work for the wider community

Potential in Everyone Academy Trust

"I was delighted to find the Academy Ambassadors website, as I had been keen for some time to put my legal and leadership skills to work for the benefit of the wider community. I am now a non-executive director of an academy trust and a member of the trust's finance and staffing committee. I have met interesting and dedicated people in the process - what unites us all, from all our different backgrounds, is a commitment to ensure great outcomes for children. Academy Ambassadors managed the process very effectively, putting me in touch with a trust who was seeking a board member with my skill set".

The next era of governance

Tim Coulson
CEO at The Samuel Ward Academy Trust and former RSC for East England and North East London

"The Samuel Ward Academy Trust was at the start of the next era of governance, with a board that had led the initial start-up of the trust and rapid growth ready to pass on the next generation of directors. The trust asked Academy Ambassadors for help and through the careful help of Sarah Pittam have successfully appointed a new chair and three new directors – these four individuals each come from impressive backgrounds and have within weeks thrown themselves into the work of the trust and are clearly going to make significant contributions to the development of the trust. Sarah supported the chair find possible directors by identifying a dozen possible appointees, shortlisting six and appointing three. The Chief Executive is clear that he is working with a board who will assist the executive with the rigour and creativity they bring."
