I first encountered Iain More, the founder of More, at a business networking event in Dundee. I knew nothing about fundraising at that point, but Iain was in dire need of IT support and apparently I impressed – not with my IT skills, but with the fact I had been bungee jumping in New Zealand a couple of years previously! That was the start of our relationship 20 years ago and I have worked with More Partnership ever since, becoming increasingly involved in the complex business of developing IT systems and services that best serve the needs of an expanding virtual company. Communication and collaboration are key for us, both internally and externally, and that is very much the focus of my work at the moment as we implement new systems and software throughout the company to help improve this.
