We are collecting stories to help people wanting to learn from our diverse leaders across the South East. We want to know what and who helped you to get where you are.

You can share your story in a number of ways:

  1. Email a written story with a photo (under 500 words)
  2. Record a video on your phone or laptop (less than 10 minutes)
  3. Arrange a 30-minute interview with one of our team
