Amanda is an executive coach, working with leaders and managers, mainly in the arts, education and the third sector.  Previously she had been editorial director at Heinemann publisher and MD of the  literary estate of Roald Dahl.  While there she developed and had responsibility for two charities, Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, a grant-making foundation working to improve the lives of seriously ill children, and the Museum and Story Centre which bears the author’s name, of which she became chair.   Amanda’s commitment to our work is founded on the experience of her daughter, who was diagnosed with Aplastic Anaemia in 2019.  She is also a volunteer prison representative for the Shannon Trust, which aims to transform peoples’ lives by encouraging prisoners who can read to teach literacy skills to those who cannot.
