Willand and Uffculme
I was born in Devon and I run a global consultancy based in Sampford Peverell that helps businesses and organisations operate commercially, at the same time as putting the interests of people and planet ahead of profit.
The key to achieving value for both money and community is building local partnerships. I believe in bringing contracts back to Devon from global corporations and big business. We should be prioritising real value for people, community and environment, instead of value for corporations who take our money in exchange for zero-hour contracts, insecurity, and a reckless search for ‘cheap’.
There are structures ready and available to help us create the civic amenities we want, but we have to set aside the tired old complacency and go out and get them. I have proven track record working with foundations and networks that deliver resources, expertise and funding. My experience over decades of contract negotiation, committee membership and union negotiation will help me to drive a more positive programme of investment in Devon.
Instead of pointless outsourcing and expensive cuts that shuffle problems and their costs elsewhere, let’s focus on bringing out the enterprising spirit in our strong communities. If you’re looking for a partner in delivering a new and more self-reliant prosperity for Devon, I am not only based here in your division, but am also more than qualified for the job.
