I am a social entrepreneur dedicated to building a Sharing Economy. I worked in broadcasting for over 20 years, launched two production companies and moved into the charity sector where I led a global entrepreneurship campaign in over 100 countries inspiring and equipping young people to be entrepreneurial. In 2011, I founded The People Who Share. I believe sharing is the solution to our global problems.
