A few words from Collette . . .
Having spent my pre-30 working life looking for the job that put fire in my belly, I found Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) quite by chance but haven’t looked back. I had swapped between the transport, recruitment and training sectors all my working life and always enjoyed working with people – but something was missing.
During my time with Stobart Group, who were then sole owners of transport giant Eddie Stobart, I was lucky enough to get a place on their esteemed management development programme. This saw me being tasked with developing a CSR policy as the work based project aspect of the course. BAM!! Light bulb moment! It happened – the fire was ignited.
Driven by that fire in my belly I decided to part ways with Stobart and start Responsible Consulting. I now spend my time helping a whole range of businesses with various levels of CSR and I love it!

Collette likes to give back and does this in many ways (including jumping out of an aeroplane and sleeping out in -5c to raise money for charity) but currently she is Vice Chair and Trustee at Cumbria Action for Sustainability.
