As a CEO of three tech-focussed organisations, I whole-heartedly understand the importance of the well-being of my staff and also how technology plays an increasingly important role in our lives. As a parent I recognise how digital tools are vital in supporting our children's learning, development and mental well-being too.
As a Creative Director, I draw inspiration from everywhere. Whilst creating the Worrinots brand and characters, the inspiration was drawn straight from my own struggles at school. I've always had a passion for problem-solving by fusing together creativity and technology... and The Worrinots application is a perfect example of this in action.
Education & Business Manager
Having spent over 20 years in classrooms (and serving in the Police) I have witnessed the deterioration of young people’s well-being first-hand. As a young parent I was keen to keep a close eye on my own children. The time came to change focus, hang up my board pens and channel my efforts into driving forward this worthy solution.
As a parent, conversation with other parents (about children’s worries) is a daily occurrence. As a busy Project Manager for a digital apps company, I could really see how a digital app would help children express their fears and anxieties rather than be overlooked or left unread for days in DIY solutions like worrybooks and worryboxes.
