One of the best parts of working at MVDA is getting to meet lots of great people passionate about making life better for Middlesbrough’s people. I love the ‘cuppa and a natter’ approach and how we get to some really deep issues in the context of a ‘thinking out loud’ discussion. I’m always inspired by what people are doing, often in some of the most challenging circumstances, and this really stirs up my curiosity to really understand what life is like on a day-to-day level for the organisations we work with and the people they support.

I feel a bit like Marty McFly having just stepped out of Doc's DeLorean and being transported back to 2014. Scotland voted to stay a member of the United Kingdom in an independent referendum, Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi won the Nobel Peace Prize, Friends celebrated its 20th anniversary making me feel very old, Conchita Wurst won Eurovision, Ed Sheeran and ‘thinking out loud’ makes number one twice and we were watching ‘The Theory of Everything’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ at the cinema.
