I was inspired to become a board member of Child Helpline International having already worked in partnership with the organisation and witnessing first-hand the staff’s commitment to supporting their members and the excellent work undertaken by the helplines. Having worked in a global membership association, I understand the importance and value that can be generated through collaboration and sharing of best practice and knowledge across members and partners. As a board member I aim to contribute by bringing my knowledge and experience from the private sector along with insight into the mobile and digital world which is shaping the environment in which children are growing up across the world.
