On joining the board: "Brighton Fringe makes up some of the most precious fabric of what makes Brighton so special - and indeed, what makes the UK performance and arts sector one of the most creative and successful in the world. It is a huge honour for me to be able to help just a little in making sure that is even more true going forward".
How do you hope to impact Brighton Fringe going forward? ''In my day job I work with companies from a number of industries that have been hugely impacted by COVID in many different ways - working with them on dealing with that, surviving and prospering. I want to bring some of that insight into helping Brighton Fringe move forward and become bigger and better when we can take the Brighton stage once again''.
