Our Operations Team deal with the day to day running of APDO as well as tackling all those important tasks that keep our association running.
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:
Karen Eyre-White is the founder of Go Do, a time management business which helps busy, ambitious small business owners in London to get more done. Through hands-on organising help with their inbox, workspace and projects, and productivity coaching to put them back in control of their time, Go Do helps brilliant small business owners find a way of working that works for them.
Karen also manages APDO’s Twitter account and aims to use the platform to raise the profile of professional organising, APDO, and individual APDO members.
After retiring from the corporate world in March 2020, Jonathan launched his own business, Room To Improve. His passion is for decluttering and organising and he loves to engage with people from all walks of life. His ambition is to help others achieve their own tidy space and happy mind, freeing them to enjoy the important things in life.
Jonathan has spent the last 40 years working for a Global Sports Brand, latterly as Corporate Social Responsibility Manager. His responsibilities included championing Diversity and Inclusion programmes for the UK business and implementing many projects. He also spent 3 years in Tokyo working for adidas Japan, during which time he gained a valuable insight into different cultures and ways of working.
Jonathan firmly believes in celebrating uniqueness, that everyone has a voice, everyone is different but the important thing is to respect each other through embracing varied perspectives and cultures.
In June 2012, after undergoing hip-replacement surgery, Jonathan was honoured to be chosen as a Torch Bearer for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
