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 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.
Noel is a straight-talking chartered accountant, business coach and author. After a career with a 'big-4' accounting firm Noel set up Guilford Accounting in 2002 to work with business owners and membership associations that want to grow their businesses and become super-successful.
Lucy has an extensive background within business management, customer service and administration. She assists with the day to day operational support for the board and ensures that our members received the best experience possible by aiding with membership queries and correspondence efficiently.
Sam began her career in Project Management for a Creative Branding Company before moving into Marketing and Sales Support. Her belief in providing the highest levels of Customer Service means she’s perfectly placed to help our Members with enquiries and assist the APDO team with Admin support.
Lisa has spent most of her career working as a Project Manager in the Financial Sector, particularly within the Customer Servicing areas of finance.
Her knowledge of finance and understanding the importance of high levels of customer service means she is able to ensure she meets all the APDO financial obligations whilst making sure both member and board financial requirements are completed in a timely manner and to a high standard.
