Sheri-Leigh Miles, Director, NETpositive Futures
Sheri-Leigh is the co-founding director of NETpositive Futures Ltd and she has been catalysing leading-edge sustainability activity in the tertiary education sector (and beyond) for over 15 years. She is an established expert in stimulating engagement with sustainability and especially experienced at working alongside teams to deliver practical and meaningful change. She focuses on developing process and practice that demonstrates excellent practice with sustainability built into ‘business as usual’.
A recent focus on sustainable procurement and Social Value has seen Sheri-Leigh support sector leaders from Higher Education to demonstrate the very best practice in this area working with over a dozen teams to demonstrate progress in relation to the Flexible Framework / ISO20400.
Since 2013 she has been leading the development of NETpositive software which provides the foundation for professional and business engagement tools that can be adapted to different contexts and sectors.
The Supplier Engagement Tool for HE has been developed for procurement professionals in the UK Higher Education Sector and is designed to promote and support Sustainable Procurement and Social Value. As well as being well-established in the Higher Education sector (used by 45 institutions and 4 partner consortia) it has now been launched in partnership with YPO and the Yorkshire and Humber Police Force.
This development is typical of Sheri-Leigh’s approach as it creates meaningful engagement opportunities, generates an evidence-base that informs future innovations and enables a host of positive spin-off benefits to be demonstrated along the way!
