Amanda Medler MBE

Senior Business Consultant

About me:

I have spent the last 30 years managing transformational change in financial services, consultancy and the third sector, predominantly in programme and change management, strategy development and implementation.

I have over 20 years experience of being a trustee too, gained through volunteering with local, national and international NGOs.

The third sector is where I thrive. I worked for Citizens Advice for several years leading a £10M project and then as a member of the Wales Leadership Team leading externally funded projects and programmes.  Subsequently I have provided consultancy services across a number of other charitable organisations, including ActionAid UK, Quakers, Missing People, Leap Confronting Conflict, Womankind Worldwide and Anthony Nolan.

I am currently Chief Guide for Girlguiding UK which has a third of a million members including 64,000 adult volunteers.

My experience as both an employee and a volunteer in the charity sector is really helpful for effective stakeholder engagement and collaboration, and ultimately for delivering impactful solutions.

I joined 4OC in September 2021. 4OC’s strong social values and their inspirational, hard-working teams make it a natural home for me

Makes

Finding solutions. Making a difference. A good gin and tonic in the evening!

Breaks

Unnecessary red tape. Inequality. Mushrooms.

What do you do when you’re not working?

My Girlguiding role keeps me busy outside of work – it is full-on volunteering!

However, I also am a keen walker, and a wannabe golfer.
