Managing Director of Hubbub Enterprise

What's your main area of work at Hubbub?

As a Director of the charity I lead on finance and operations, develop strategy and generally try to make Hubbub the best organisation it can be. I also oversee some of our priority projects, particularly around food. As Managing Director of Hubbub Enterprise I'm responsible for all aspects of our social enterprise, from managing the team to developing new business.


What's your favourite campaign and why?

Plastic Fishing is special: it brings the marine pollution issue to life for everyone who steps aboard one of our recycled plastic boats. And with my business hat on, I love that we can use corporate volunteering income to subsidise environmental education for children.


What did life before Hubbub look like?

I ran my own business representing US record labels in Europe, managed musicians, and generally fulfilled my youthful music biz dreams! The lustre wore off after a while though, and a brilliant career-change programme called On Purpose helped me find more meaningful work... and here I am!


What else are you passionate about?

Books are my one true love. Classics, politics, travel, short stories... I'm rarely without a book. I still geek out about records and seek comfort in '70s soul & '90s hip hop. And it's hard to find a non-cheesy way to say this, so here goes: I'm passionate about creating a just society.


What would you eat if you only had one meal left?

A Keralan feast. Something involving dark chocolate. Armagnac.
