Operations Team

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:

  • Jo Whalley

    APDO Board Members
  • Diversity Champion

    Jo founded Tidy4Time, following a series of life changing events in 2020 where her decluttering and organisational skills were put to the test. These events led to Jo setting up her service to be an ally to others, that she wished she had, had at the time.

    The majority of Jo’s career to date has been spent in administrative roles, where she has built up a wealth of experience supporting and organising others.

    As a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, Jo has always been passionate about diversity and inclusion and hopes that one day we get to live in a world where everyone can be their authentic self.

    At her previous organisation, Jo co-founded and chaired the LGBTQ+ network and was also instrumental in the formation of the wider diversity and inclusion network.
