Board

Our unpaid volunteer board is a group of senior corporate executives and entrepreneurs, passionate about supporting the members of our community who struggle with anxiety and depression. We’ve all been exposed to this problem either through family and friends or in the working environment and are strongly determined to find the solution.

We bring a diverse and complementary set of skills and a wealth of operational and governance experience to ensure that Bluebird members receive quality support.
