During a 40 year career working within the public, private and charity sectors, Chris has developed an intuitive sense of what makes a good strategy and retains a strong passion for supporting the environmental, social and economic development of local communities.
With previous responsibilities including Senior Economic Development Officer at a local authority, and Head of Commercial Development for a national charity, in 2019 Chris set up Think Funding, with a mission to support the charity sector in obtaining Grants and Funding. Since its inception it has won over £2.5M in funding for local and national charities – enabling the launch of a variety of community initiatives, ranging from employability skills programmes to help with tackling domestic abuse.

A sales person at heart, with a creative flair and inimitable style, Stacey has successfully led national PR campaigns for international retail brands and delivered sales and social media training to small businesses.
