What was I doing before Do Something Different?
I’ve been working as a freelance digital project and product manager across a variety of sectors, including broadcasting, business, charity, education and the public sector.
Why did I join?
Do Something Different is helping people change the habits that prevent them taking the actions they want to take to change themselves, their communities and society for the better. It feels like a good thing to be part of.
What do I do?
At Do Something Different we have lots of ideas about how we can make our products even more brilliant and enjoyable to use, and we want to do them all as soon as possible. So I work with the team to prioritise and shape those ideas and make sure we’re all pulling together to deliver the best products and service we can.
What do I most want to change in the world?
There is a big gap between what we know we need to do to make the world a better place and what we collectively do to bring about that change. I’d like to see that gap close and I think Do Something Different can help with that.
What do I most want to change about me?
I have a rubbish memory – I have to write everything down. So I’m always looking for ways of getting better at recalling facts and figures without looking things up. I’m currently exercising the grey matter at pub quizzes. I think it’s helping a bit, but in any event they’re good fun.
What am I doing differently?
I’m starting Wing Tsun Kung Fu martial arts classes. It’s something completely new that I’ve never done before. So beware – don’t creep up on me!
