Tell us about your journey with Pilotlight. What drew you to us?
What drew me to Pilotlight was the combination of bringing business professionals and charities together to work together for a common purpose on a monthly basis. For me it was an opportunity to give back using my business skills and experience and work with different charities at a strategic level.

Since 2019 so four years already. Time flies when you are having fun!
How would you describe your experience so far?
I have enjoyed the variety of projects and have seen amazing charities doing awesome work. It has given me insight and respect for the challenges charities are facing and how resilient and passionate the people who work for the charities are. I have also got to know great Pilotlighters which makes the monthly meetings fun and insightful.
What motivates you through the Pilotlight 360 project journey?
I started working with Pilotlight to give back and have found that I receive so much from the charities: they inspire me every time with their dedication, their resilience and their entrepreneurship.
