Sheri-Leigh has more than 20 years’ experience in aiding organisations, teams and networks in evaluating their operational processes and establishing connections between sustainability and organisational excellence. She has an extensive teaching background in sustainability at all levels, most recently as part of the academic team delivering Executive Education (MBA programme) at Newcastle University Business School and was part of the award-winning Ecoversity team at the University of Bradford, delivering some of the first whole-institution approaches to sustainability in UK Higher Education.

Sheri-Leigh combines her hands-on proficiency with a track record of strategic engagement that has been instrumental in shaping the evolution of sustainability within the UK Further and Higher Education sector. Her contributions include a notable 7-year tenure on the Board of the EAUC (Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges), with 4 of those years spent as the Chair. Her leadership coincided with a period of substantial expansion for the organisation, marked by a comprehensive strategic evaluation and its transformation into a charitable entity. As a member of national funding council steering groups, she also contributed significantly to the development and delivery of the sector’s earliest sustainability strategies.

Invited to become a fellow of The RSA (The Royal Society for Arts, Manufacturers and Commerce) in 2019, Sheri-Leigh sits on the steering group for their Sustainability Network, a group of more than 900 sustainability professionals sharing knowledge, resources and promoting specific initiatives and a collaborative approach to sustainability. She is also on the Board of Governors of Change Agents UK a non-profit established to promote public awareness and understanding of the principles of sustainability – and how to put them into practice in life and work.
