“I enjoyed supporting this premier attraction as a Trustee and Non-exec Chair of its Trading Board.”
Eureka! The Museum for Children retains the well deserved reputation as the premier educational children’s attraction and museum in the UK. Based in Halifax and registered as a charity, Eureka! operates both the attraction itself in addition to a variety of commercial activities from retail and catering through to educational materials, nursery provision and property investment.
I was a member of the Board of Trustees between 2003 and 2006, helping the organisation to become more commercially focused. In addition to my Trustee Board responsibilities, I also:
- Chaired the Trading Board, responsible for the commercial operations of the charity, and
- Assisted with the redevelopment of Eureka’s online experience, in order to reflect the great physical experience its visitors enjoy.
