Laura Hopper

"I have a wide range of experience in the for-profit and non-profit sectors which will enable me to contribute to the board and fulfil my duty of care as a director. With my financial background, I have the ability to understand and examine finances in detail. I have experience of working with boards and a sound understanding of governance through my roles both as as a CEO and a trustee of a small charities. I have a solid track record of securing investment including raising equity, applying for grants from trusts and foundations and working with corporate partners. I love film and helping independent filmmakers and will bring this enthusiasm to supporting the work of Together. After moving to the UK, I co-founded and participated in a community filmmaking group in North London for a couple of years. I now support my daughter who is studying to be a cinematographer."

Phil Geraghty 

"I have a long history of building tech platforms for mass consumer and business engagement, most recently I was the founder and managing director of crowdfunder.co.uk, where I oversaw the growth from zero to £60M raised for 25,000 community project. My skillset is a mix of digital product, commercial, tech and marketing. I have lead tech teams, product team and marketing teams for over 20 years, all in online businesses. I love bridging that gap between tech and business and how that can bring about improvements to peoples lives."

Philip Turvil

"I've engaged millions of people to create change in their lives. This is evidenced at Kew Gardens where I deliver their award-winning, £14m education initiative focused on community connections across the UK. I'd also add value to Together from my skills as an award-winning communicator. I've worked with great teams to bring products to market, fund youth-led projects and run digital campaigns. If elected, I'd especially like to develop my co-opted role on Together's membership committee. There's great potential to positively engage members and wider supporters."
