Meet the Board
Board Role: President
Day Job: Event Manager
My plan this year is to concentrate on the members and making sure that they are getting what they would like out of their JCI experience. Whether this is ensuring there are training opportunities, coaching into desired roles, assisting in projects or just being at the other end of the phone for help, I want to be accessible and available. JCI has offered me so many opportunities and helped me develop massively over my years with the organisation, I just want to be here to support others and create a great 2016 programme.
Board Role: Vice-President and Personal and Professional Development
Day Job: Economic Development Officer at Aberdeenshire Council
My vision for 2016 is to make good quality training available to our members and to grow opportunities within the JCI Network. I want to build the networks within JCI Scotland to increase the access to training and opportunities throughout Scotland network.
Board Role: Treasurer
Day Job: Audit Manager at KPMG UK
My aim for 2016 is to ensure that the finances of JCI Aberdeen are kept up to date and ensure that an easy to understand method of accounting is brought in for non-finance members. I also want to ensure that JCI Aberdeen gets the best prices possible for our expenditure and ensure that our agreed budget is followed.
Board Role: Business and Community
Day Job: Human Recourses
I’m continuing my role in B&C and hoping to connect JCI Aberdeen closer to the business community in Aberdeen. I’m also excited about working with our Charity of the Year, Instant Neighbour, as they are a great charity in Aberdeen and excited to be working with them this year.
Board Role: Communications
Day Job: Offshore Projects and Operations and EnQuest
I’m hoping to bring the JCI Aberdeen social media side back to life as it’s a great way to reach people nowadays, and also to help support Comms as and when I can, and any other board members of course seeing as I’m taking more of a “stepped back” role this year. Hopefully we can get JCI Aberdeen known throughout Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn working together with our chosen charity, patrons and local businesses.
