Mark has had over thirty years’ experience working in the leisure and culture fields, much of it dealing with local government. For many years he was Chief Executive of the Museums Association, the body representing and informing museums in the UK and those who work in them. This involved dealing with European, national and local politicians as well as strategic and lottery bodies. This has given him a unique insight and knowledge of the different ways of transforming and delivering culture either within authorities or through a trust. This work and his subsequent career in the health sector has given him experience in transformation, leadership, strategy, fund raising and change. In the last few years he has been successfully helping the growth of the Higgins Bedford, is Chair of Heritage Milton Keynes and is a Board member of the Harpur Trust, a major educational and grant giving charity. Recently he has written a significant report for Cambridge City Council on their arts provision and is currently working with Sight Concern in Bedford to develop their strategic plan.
