Our marketing team work together to promote the work of APDO and our members to the public.
We wouldn’t be where we are today without the dedication and enthusiasm of our volunteers since 2004 and openly thank our past and present members for their voluntary contributions in making APDO a membership body to be proud of.
We would like to introduce our current stars of the show:
When Liz admitted she loves working with words, we jumped at the chance to have her coordinate the APDO quarterly newsletter which is jam-packed with activities our members are up to and industry developments.
Lynda has been decluttering and organising professionally since 2012 when she started Tidy Rooms.
She has 10 years experience as a Charity Volunteer Manager and Community Fundraiser, as well as Corporate experience in Facilities Management and PA roles.
Lynda has a degree in Information Management and is a logical thinker who loves to get alongside people to support them with their practical and emotional needs.
She loves being part of the APDO community and enjoys staying connected through blogging and facilitating the local APDO network.
Anne is an information professional, an expert in documentation and the author of the core textbook used internationally to train librarians, Practical Cataloguing (London: Facet; Chicago: Neal Schuman, 2012; new edition due 2021).
She offers writing, consultancy and training through Beginning Cataloguing, and has worked on the books and papers of several writers and artists.
This led her to discover professional organising and APDO, and from January 2021 she has opened her service more widely through Tidy Beginnings, which offers easy-to-access private librarianship, professional organising, decluttering and virtual organising.
After a quarter century working with institutional collections, she is enjoying helping people with their home and studio libraries, and, increasingly, with objects other than books.
Anne is using her experience in taxonomy design to review the APDO blog’s structure, functionality and SEO.
Andrea launched her business TidyAway in January 2020 after a rewarding career, first working as a nurse in the NHS and later in the education system as a learning support assistant in a Primary school.
Organising has always been a big part of her life, she gets great satisfaction when helping people through the process to regain control of their surroundings and bring a sense of order to their homes.
She looks forward to the opportunity of working in a team whilst volunteering for APDO.
Laura launched her business, OrganisedWell, in 2018 to pursue her passion for helping people who feel overwhelmed to regain control and create calmer, more organised homes and lives. With a background in people management, coaching and leadership, she joins APDO as our key contact for website analytics.
Daxa launched ClutterGenie in 2018 after realising the true joy she felt in helping friends and family declutter and organise their homes.
With a background in designing and developing online management systems in the corporate world, she has always had a love of finding solutions and systems to organise and make things easier and more efficient. She can now use these skills to help people create blissful home environments while helping APDO with her online web knowledge.
Rebecca launched Curate My Space in 2022 and is thrilled to be fulfilling a long-held dream of making people's lives easier by making their homes beautiful, functional, and simple to manage.
A chartered surveyor by background, she has had a 20 year career in commercial property across the investment, development and finance sectors. She is fascinated by the built environment and by the way in which people use and occupy space. In particular, she sees the home environment as a key contributor to overall wellbeing.
A natural organiser and problem solver, she enjoys meeting new people and being of service to others and is delighted to be able to use her skills and experience to support APDO as a volunteer.
Craig launched A Tidy Mind - London in 2019 to fulfil his passion for organising, decluttering and life simplification.
He describes himself as a 'solutionist' and believes any problem can be solved with a calm, thoughtful and organised approach.
He has previously worked in media, fashion, dating, travel and pet industries. He is an animal lover and co-founded a pet rescue in the Seychelles where he grew up.
Craig studied Graphic Design & fine art and is happy to be using his creative skills to help APDO with our design needs.
