CEO Update - July 2024

Summer is finally here and this year is flying and I can’t believe I’ve nearly been CEO for 3 years. In this July edition of our E-Positive Pressure, there are some exciting things to update you on.




Know Your Numbers! Week 2024 is fast approaching, so make sure you get the 2nd – 8th September in your diaries and register your interest in this edition. We also have some news as our founder and long-serving Chair Professor Graham MacGregor who founded the charity in 1996 is stepping down. We are hugely thankful for all of Graham’s hard work and dedication, and we are really pleased that he is staying on as a trustee. You can read about why Graham started the Charity in this edition. I must also say a warm welcome to Dr. Pauline Swift who is stepping up from her role as Deputy Chair to take up the challenge.

On a personal note, I’m continuing to try and reduce the salt content in my diet, but my next challenge is to up my cardiovascular activity. With two children under five, finding the time and energy is always a challenge, but as a family, we’ve recently bought bikes so I have been getting out for some lovely country bike rides since swapping London for the West Sussex countryside. There is still so much to do and I want to take this opportunity to thank all our supporters, members, and partners who without your help and generosity we couldn't reach the amount of people we do with advice and guidance.

So as always, a big thank you to you all, and I hope you enjoy this July edition of E-Positive Pressure.
