My role as Managing Director is incredibly varied. As we grow to 40 full-time employees operating across the UK in a range of different sectors, my focus is on the development of Peridot’s workforce, organisational infrastructure and preservation of our culture. As we evolve as a business our culture develops, so living our values and keeping them meaningful is important to me.
Working with clients is now a rare luxury. When I do it’s usually on board development processes. I’m passionate about governance, boards and leadership and love working to support improvement in these areas. I’m currently a Board Member and Trustee of two organisations: Tavistock Institute of Human Relations and Getting on Board.
To relax I practice karate and Krav Maga. I’m also hugely passionate about grassroots sport and how it benefits young people and am currently Club Treasurer and a Team Manager for Potters Bar Crusaders Girls FC in Hertfordshire.
Talk to me about:
“It has been a professional and personal pleasure to work with Grant and Jennifer during a very exciting time of growth for our Charity. The service we received was beyond expectations and excellent in every way. Having an active, engaged, knowledgeable and skillful Board is a vital ingredient to charitable success and we now have that thanks to Peridot.”
