Marketing Manager

Hi I’m Simon and I work as Marketing Manager for Better Connect.  I manage the overall marketing work, highlighting the impact of the ATI programme. 

The great part of my job is it allows me to meet really interesting people in lots of different walks of life and ask them to tell me their story. 

I’ve worked in the voluntary and charitable sector for over 20 years now in a number of different roles and think the sector represents what is great in Great Britain.
