Laura specialises in project management and management development
Laura has 8 years experience in the charity sector, in particular developing and delivering volunteer and community projects. Before joining =mc she was Project Officer at Sustrans, managing their London volunteer programme, focussing on project management, learning and development, and support and advice for staff and volunteers.
Throughout 2017 Project Management has been a key focus for me. I’ve been working with Bowel Cancer UK, Historic England and Stonewall to introduce our Systems Model approach. I’ve also been working closely with Culture Coventry to embed a bespoke organisational approach to project management.
Looking forward to the Autumn and Winter I will be working with Fairtrade Foundation and WWF UK delivering programmes on communication skills. In addition I will be working with managers at West Kent Housing and Dumfries & Galloway Housing Partnership to develop their skills and confidence with leading others.
I started my career in the environmental charity sector developing and delivering community conservation projects before moving on to recruit, train and manage staff and volunteers to deliver excellent customer service for the National Trust.
Most recently I have been the lead project officer working on innovative volunteer-led projects within communities across London, including working with the Greater London Authority (GLA) to raise awareness about air pollution in London. I was responsible for the development and delivery of the Sustrans volunteer strategy as well as the learning and development programme for volunteers. My love of developing and delivering training to volunteers and staff for projects and professional development has led me to concentrate on a career in learning and development.
