"I am thrilled with the opportunity of serving as a member of the Board of Governors of Sidcot School and look forward to supporting the school, its ethos and mission. Having only recently left a long banking career, Nurole has provided me with an important means of identifying interesting and challenging Board opportunities such as the Sidcot School role. I would not have seen many of these opportunities through more traditional executive search channels where my background may not have conformed precisely to historically fixed and formal expectations."
