Sharyn was introduced to the CMI via an employers' investment programme and became a Chartered Manager in 2011.   Part of the original NEYH regional board from it's inception in 2103, she has already contributed to the region. Most recently, heading up the Partnerships and Collaboration for Growth team, which focuses on all levels of education from Campus and Universities to Private Learning Providers.  Watch out for the Student Ambassador Programme and the TTT, both of which started from conversations Sharyn had with delegates at CMI Engage events.

Although this is  Sharyn's first board chair position, she has worked extensively with teams in both the UK and India and is looking forward to the challenge of  working with a group of like minded volunteers with the  primary aim of achieving the CMI's strategic objectives.
