When Nancy published her first book in 1999, my boss at the time, Christopher Spence CBE, Chief Executive of Volunteering England - and Nancy’s husband -introduced me to The Thinking Environment. I took it into YouthNet where I was Chief Executive for 11 years and I believe it was key to us winning Charity Times 'Best Charity To Work For 2008'.
Following a successful 30 year career in the voluntary sector, I came to realise that my new purpose in life was to inspire, support and enable people, often leaders, to master their own vital space and find their own path to fulfilment and success - in work and life generally - however they choose to define it.
