Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world 

I am passionate about decarbonisation and helping businesses achieve their carbon reduction and wider sustainability goals. My particular area of focus is on addressing challenges connected with the transition to net zero carbon.

I am a director of Regen SW, the independent centre of sustainable energy expertise based in the South West of England that promotes the transition to a smart low-carbon energy system. I am also company secretary of FareShare South West, a charity that redistributes surplus food from the food and drink industry to a network of local groups working with disadvantaged people thereby helping address food poverty, providing opportunities for volunteering and training and reducing waste and associated carbon emissions.
