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.
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.
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.
Bibi Rodley is co-founder and co-owner of Simply Organised Essex. After working in a variety of corporate roles and more recently for a wedding venue, her love of organising for work, family and friends established her foundation to set up Simply Organised Essex with her work partner Kate, during lockdown 2020, after they both did lots of their own personal decluttering.
Bibi is always looking at new ways to reuse and recycle items and avoid too much going to landfill and promotes this on their website.
Lou is the owner of Be Clutter Free based in Lancashire. Having spent a number of years in Australia, Lou returned to the UK in 2019. After juggling teenagers, several house moves and overseas ventures, she found her natural talent for organisation in the corporate world was going to waste. Lou had the desire to transition her skills into a craft that would make a difference to people's lives. With 'Rehome, Reuse, Recycle' being top of mind with every client, Lou thoughtfully finds different ways to minimise environmental impact through the decluttering process. This includes helping clients donate their items to local and national charities and finding different uses for previously loved things.
