It feels weird writing a news post about myself but I wanted to share this with you personally rather than handing it off to one of the team to announce. I received a very exciting email yesterday congratulating me on becoming one of Lead Norfolk’s young leaders for 2015.

The criteria for the chosen 50 was as follows:

  • Aged between 16 – 35
  • Lives or works in Norfolk
  • Track record of leadership
  • Commitment to developing our community
  • Proven ability to create change, challenge and develop ideas

As a LNLeader, I will be attending a number of events over the next 12 months including the Young Leaders Summit on 23rd July. This event aims to connect 2015’s crop of young leaders with like-minded people in Norfolk to provide a platform to learn and share ideas. Throughout the day we will be invited to take part in panel discussions as well as take part in a number of workshops designed to spark dialogue around the challenges and opportunities young leaders face in Norfolk.

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to have been chosen for this and I can’t wait to meet all the other young leaders! Keep an eye on Twitter and the tag #LN15, where we’ll be sharing all our Lead Norfolk adventures.
